Why This Blog? Why Now? Why This title?

I am no longer blogging under duress. This part remains true: I had a blog once and I lost the password...and then, I gave up. I really am not a giver-upper, but there is a point of diminishing returns to anything that takes energy, passion, and vision and yet, doesn't work out. So, off I go again, wish me luck! AND knock on wood I have had luck. And it is sort of fun.

P.S. Why this title? I read this phrase today 6/16, don't remember where. I liked it. I'm using it. I might change it. It may or may not have relationship to the content.

My Summer Reading Stack

Here is my summer reading stack. Sad to say I am not really jazzed about any of my choices. I am reading to learn more about PBL so that I can think about the differences between PBL and Expeditionary Learning. The rest...just happen to be on my coffee table. Hope to adopt book ideas from others.

This next one is really quite interesting...I am finishing it up

I've seen this on other reader's lists

One more I started and intend to finish

Two new ones

And...because we (as a school) do so much of this.....

I would like to say that I have read


 and finally

Oops! one more

 I would recommend all four. I'm looking forward to other choices and the discussion!

  1. Noreene,
    You have many "new to me" titles in your stack. I need to read more about PBL and am always interested in reading more about brain research (but know I need to read those books slowly --- lots of thinking). I'll be interested to hear what you think.

    Glad you are joining the conversation again,
