NCTE Annual Convention - Sir Ken Robinson (Video)

I'm incredibly excited about the National Council of Teachers of English annual convention. That's not just because I get to be out of the office for a few days--though it doesn't hurt. For three days I'll be hearing from experts in literacy, English studies, and fine arts. They'll be discussing the Common Core standards (math and English language arts), which is important for educators, nonfiction children's writers, and even science content specialists like yours truly. But the highlight of my trip will probably be getting to hear from Sir Ken Robinson. Sir/Dr./Mr. Robinson is known across the globe as a leader in education, particularly bringing creativity and innovation back into the classrooms. This should be a fun conference and I hope to share some of my experiences when I return.

If you haven't watched Sir Ken Robinson's TED talk on creativity, you should definitely check it out, and not just because he's funny--though it doesn't hurt:
