Start following a few blogs related to education. When you find something you find interesting, sign up using your email. When there is a new post, you will get an email. It's quite simple and it keeps you updated with what's going on in the world of education. Here are some of my favorites:
http://franmcveigh.wordpress.com/ (she's from an AEA in Iowa)
http://www.teachingthecore.com/ (one of my favorites on the Common Core. He makes it so easy to understand. Uses humor too!)
http://principalreflections.wordpress.com/ (from a principal- very good)
The full principal meltdown: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDASxk5kiDw
Hopefully you've never had a principal have a meltdown like this.
How familiar are you with these terms?
-Iowa Common Core (Common Core if you're not teaching in Iowa) Do you know the difference?
-Workshops (Reading, Writing, Language, and Content)
Become familiar with these terms. That's why I follow good worth while blogs so I can keep with what's going on in education. If you have some other key terms I should add to the list, please let me know.
