I found this website featured on the technology for teachers website. It is called Read Write Think. It is a great place to find story starters and interactive writing templates. A good example of that is found on Read Write Thinks compare and contrast map. Also check out the other classroom resources and the professional development section.

CPD or Continuing Professional Development is and will continue to be part of the education industry. Let's face it, we want to be better teachers for our students right? and our bosses will continue to make it mandatory for us to engage in some form of CPD. But many times seminars or classes are expensive, too far away, or in many cases not appropriate to our type of teaching. So I am a strong believer in starting your own personal CPD. There are many ways to do this. Form groups of like minded teachers at your school or near by schools. Get your self on some email subscription lists. These are just a few of the many ways you can start. Even if you cant get others interested in CPD's you can still do it on your own. I have found a website that hosts educational webinars on a wide range of topics and I wanted to share it with you. Click on the link below.
