School on a Saturday!

March 9, 2013  |  Teaching

I’m hanging out with a few thousand of my closest teacher friends today at the college as we are hosting a day of free professional development for teachers from all over the country. There are more than 100 seminars and sessions today — all aimed at the art and what in recent years has become the politics of teaching.

I’m leading two groups. My first one is one at noon on the “bring your own technology” movement that is changing how many schools interact with tools like cell phones, tablets, and laptops. My second session is on a more familiar topic — struggling readers.

I’m looking forward to sharing ideas across the day. As we work together, I’ll be posting resources here and to my twitter stream on the right. If you are not in NYC today, check back often, and follow along @MisterMinor #TCRWP

Resource Update:



  1. Hey, Cornelius! Your presentation was so inspiring. I use a fair amount of tech with my students, but your personality! Wow! That is something I want more of for me to be!
    Anyway, great meeting you and to think that some of my former students from 130 are/have been in your classes–I am very grateful to know this.
    Thanks, Rosie Silberman Zagami

    I had the opportunity to come to your workshop at Columbia. Hey, I’ve got to tell you the EWF titles in your session titles grabbed me hook, line and sinker being that I’m a lifetime fan (I saw them at Foxwoods,New Year’s Eve) Thereafter, your sessions were gripping and I integrated some of the things in my class this week (child labor – the best, lol!). It was a pleasure to meet you and I look forward speaking with you again soon.

    • You are one of the few people to catch all my covert Earth, Wind, and Fire references! You are a friend for life. I’m so glad that you attended. Let me know how things progress!
