Q & A Collections: Professional Development
I'll begin posting new questions and answers next week, and during the summer I have been sharing thematic posts bringing together responses on similar topics from the past three years. This is the last of these compilation posts for the summer!
The only post between now and new questions will be one listing the most popular posts from the past three years, and then get ready for a full season of forty-five new "questions-of-the-week."
Today's theme is on Professional Development and, in some ways, it's a "catch-all" lists of posts that didn't quite fit in the other categories. Previous themes have been:
I spent the summer organizing questions and answers for this school year, and there is always room for more!

Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a variety of education publishers.
Also, you can listen to ten minute interviews I've done with contributors to this column at my BAM! Radio Show.
Education Week has also published a popular E-book collection of posts from this blog and added new material.
And, now, here's a list of all my columns that roughly fall under the theme of professional development:
In addition to sharing many comments from readers, educators Amy Benjamin and Dina Strasser post their thoughts in this post.
This post includes contributions from Terry Thompson, Renee Moore and Cindi Rigsbee.
This column has quite a line-up, starting with Roxanna Elden, who is one of the most engaging and entertaining education writers around. Her contribution is followed by guest responses from two other exceptional educators and authors -- Allen Mendler and Julia Thompson.
New York City teacher José Vilson and Sacramento educator Alice Mercer share their responses.
This post features a guest response from educator Ray Salazar who, in addition to sharing his personal experiences and thoughts, interviewed other teachers, too.
High School principal Eric Sheninger, Middle School principal Pete Hall, and Superintendent Pamela Moran share their advice.
I hope you've found this summary useful and, again, keep those questions coming!
