This is for all interested CMS Employees:
Are you reading Relationships+Rules+Routines=Results for CMS Summer Reading? Would you like to be able to discuss as you read? If so, go to
then request to join the private wiki at the prompt. It's nothing official just a group of us doing an online book discussion as we read each chapter.
Once you are a member you can ask and answer questions, make comments for discussion, and share passages that resonate with you as you read from home or anywhere you are.
I made it a wikispace since wikis have good discussion organization, comments can remain private only to those who join as CMS employees, and most CMS teachers are familiar with the cms wiki, even if they have not used it for discussion before.
If you are not sure what I mean, this video shows what the site looks like once you join and walks through how to add comments and go to different chapter pages for discussion (sorry no sound) http://youtu.be/2t5BHDvxpsk?t=16s
Speaking of Summer PD, this can be a good time to check out old posts you may have missed on this site or scroll through memory lane all the amazingness from last year's learning at Piedmont .
One of the best ways to get ideas for your classroom is to see what's happening in other rooms, even if it is not the same subject or grade.
If you're already finished the book, here is my latest list of summer links and news your reading enjoyment!
Enjoy the rest of break!
