The Best of I Want to Teach Forever: July 2009

It's been a crazy month for me personally, as pretty much every facet of my life outside of this blog changed completely. Being able to write and share things here definitely helped me feel better. With that being said, my list of best work this month is short:

How Do I Keep Kids Engaged And Learning: The Short Answer [7/1]
Big Idea Week [week of 7/12]

I tried to start a book club, but I haven't gotten any responses for our post-reading discussion. I'm a little confused after such a strong positive response to my poll about whether readers wanted to participate. I'll just assume you're all contemplating your brilliant responses to our book of the month!

There were new weekly entries for the 52 Teachers, 52 Lessons community project (you can find it every Monday) and Five for Friday (hopefully you can figure out when that one is).
