If you are a teacher on twitter, you can “join” this group – which means nothing except your name is added to a list. I like this b/c it helps teachers find other teachers.

Great feedback from Kim Cofino from the peer review of flat classroom from her fifth graders.

Kim is one of the leaders and organizers of the sounding board program.
