How have you connected with a network of educators? Are you connecting with a local group or a national group or both? How are utilizing your networks?
I just found out about a couple of opportunities to connect with Meenoo Rami and others reading Thrive. The first is a Twitter chat this Wednesday at 7pm Eastern at #EdThrive. (Thank you to Liz Chatwell for sharing that on Twitter.) Also, the publisher of Thrive is hosting an online summer book club and will be reading four of their books, including Thrive. There will be a free webinar with the authors to kick off the book club this Friday at 4pm Eastern. Find more information on the website.
For next week, please read chapter 3. Also, if you have not introduced yourself, please jump back to the first week's post and introduce yourself to the group.
