Education Writers to Read #1
In his own words:
I teach English, Social Studies and International Baccalaureate
classes to English Language Learners and mainstream students at Luther
Burbank High School in Sacramento, California.
I've written seven
books: Building A Community Of Self-Motivated Learners: Strategies To
Help Students Thrive In School and Beyond; Classroom Management
Q&As: Expert Strategies for Teaching; Self-Driven Learning: Teaching
Strategies For Student Motivation; The ESL/ELL Teacher's Survival Guide
(with co-author Katie Hull Sypnieski); Helping Students Motivate
Themselves: Practical Answers To Classroom Challenges; English Language
Learners: Teaching Strategies That Work; and Building Parent Engagement
In Schools (with co-author Lorie Hammond).
I've won several
awards, including the Leadership For A Changing World Award from the
Ford Foundation and was the Grand Prize Winner of the International
Reading Association Award for Technology and Reading.
I write a
popular education blog at http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/ , a weekly
teacher advice column for Education Week Teacher and a weekly post for
The New York Times. My articles on education policy regularly appear in
the Washington Post and the Huffington Post. In addition, my articles
have appeared in publications such as ASCD Educational Leadership,
Social Policy, and Language Magazine. I also host an online radio show
on The BAM! Network.
I was a community organizer for nineteen years prior to becoming a public school teacher.
I cannot imagine how Larry Ferlazzo gets everything done! Just teaching his students is more than a fulltime career! But he is an excellent, impactive education writer representing his students with knowledge, persistence, and intelligence of information. Read everything he's written, and keep up with his outstanding new stuff. RSS feeds could help.
