Monday Must Reads: Volume 37

Even though the Oklahoma Teacher Walk-out remains unresolved, my district is back in school this week. To help inspire me to plan engaging lessons for my students, I'm once again compiling a list of the awesomeness I've seen on twitter over the past week. I refer to these as my "Monday Must Reads." I hope you enjoy reading through these highlights and find something you can use in your classroom.
