I have a couple of posts that published elsewhere on the Interwebs this past week:
On the Mindwing Blog, click on over to move past character and setting and talk about something actually happening on "a ho-hum day." This post outlines some resources for working with kids about initiating events/Kick-Offs (closely aligned with problems in real life and curriculum-based stories).
On the ADVANCE blog, the continuing series on Google tools for SLPs touches on Google Maps, which is not just a social studies tool! Do you know the story The Scrambled States of America by Laurie Keller? Read this post and contribute to a collaborative Google Map about the story!
Tackling the Communicative Function of (Blog) Comments, over at the ASHAsphere blog. Please Comment!
