Here’s Our Schedule of Events…
What are your options? Remember, do what you can, when you can!
1. Sign up to participate in and follow the #denreads hash tag on Twitter. Go ahead and introduce yourself, telling your name and when you are from. Decide how you want to follow.
2. Keep up with the DEN Blogs. We will have a series of four blog posts for the weeks of September 23 and September 30. Read and continue the conversation through the comments. Being a part of the DEN offers many ways to be connected, so this is a great way to get your feet wet.

Our Second Discussion Point…
Use the comment section below as a way to generate discussion about Fish! Part of being a connected educator is using forums like this one to extend conversations. If you leave a comment, check back and respond to those who might have responded to your thoughts. Also, be sure to take the time to read the comments below. Often, as much (or meaning) comes from the discussion in the comments than comes from the original post.
My question to you is
Have you been in a school/district/classroom that is a Toxic Energy Dump? What are the characteristics of a learning space that reflects this negative energy? How does it affect the people who exist in the space?
Who would be the key players in making the essential shifts to move a school/district/classroom away from being a Toxic Energy Dump? Where would you start? These Toxic Energy Dumps will exist around us, and sometimes it falls on us to help move a space away from this negative energy. If you were faced with this daunting task, where would you begin? Is it even possible to fix your own Toxic Energy Dump amid a swamp of negativity?
