Sometimes a thread on Twitter will inspire an idea or lesson. Author Laurie Halse Anderson spoke about resilience literature at a conference in late fall 2013, and those tweets--along with retweets and replies--inspired a lesson about resilience literature in my own school library. Both sites are also great resources for information and suggestions on topics such as makerspaces and library centers.
Next time you're looking for a little inspiration, why not try one of these sites and see what piques your interest? And if you have already used social media to shape lesson planning or as a resource, please share!
