Can you believe Halloween is only a week away? Connected Educator Month (CEM) is still going strong and so is Chad’s Choices! You do know that one of the goals behind Chad’s Choices is very similar to that of CEM – connect educators to each other, ideas, and resources, right? With that being said, enjoy this week’s post.
By the way, if you’re not familiar with Chad’s Choices from the Community, get acquainted now. This series is designed to highlight the DEN Community in a variety of ways. You’ll find a few blog posts and resources that were shared by a DEN member on Twitter. Keep in mind, while others may have also shared the same post/article, I saw it posted by the person I’m noting below. Forgive me if I’m not giving credit to the person who first posted it. In addition, you’ll find a few blogs by DEN members and members from community to follow on Twitter. Some of the people listed are veteran DEN members while others are new to the community. Lastly, I’d like to share a DEN Person of Interest.
