Presenting the Podcast, Pondering the Past and Looking to the FuturePosted: January 26, 2014
This past week The Big Fresh Newsletter, a free resource for teachers from Choice Literacy, posted a podcast discussion that we (Kristi and Marjorie) had about charts with Franki Sibberson (amazing author, librarian, and lead contributer at Choice Literacy) http://www.choiceliteracy.com/articles-detail-view.php?id=1847 . Obviously charts are one of our favorite things to talk about, but as we talked we realized that many of the things we discussed have examples that can be found in previous posts on Chartchums. So, first listen to the podcast (if you want a bit of fun you can tally how often Kristi says, “you know?” and Marjorie says “right?”). Then you can come back to this page and see some examples of the charts, tools, and technology that we talk about with Franki.

While we have shared many charting ideas and experiences with you, charting is as ever changing as our teaching because we work with children who continually challenge and inspire us to take what we know to new and higher levels. Our next post will be dedicated to answering your questions, so send us the challenges, the concerns, the ongoing questions you have about making and using charts in your classroom – no matter the subject – and we will think together with you in our ongoing search for finding answers to how best we can support our students needs and our instructional goals both. We look forward to hearing from all of you!
