The Big Picture

“We need to be careful not to lose sight of the big picture”, said Professor Jonathan Osborne from Stanford University at one of the sessions I attended at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conference.

Head Above Water

As I look back at my spring break there isn’t much to be said in terms of straying from the norm of my schedule.  This time was spent much as the same way that I have spent the majority of my weeks here at Teachers College – working!  My break was a jumble of personal …
