    Explain that you will be asking them questions about definitions, synonyms, antonyms, parts of speech, and usage in a sentence concerning their current unit of study in their vocabulary books.
    When a team gets a correct answer to one of your questions (first to raise their hands and have an answer ready) they will then shoot from whichever line they choose and get the corresponding number of points if they make a basket.

    Why Blogs?
    Much of our professional development does not happen in Language Arts meetings, but rather from reflecting on our own experiences in the classroom and by reading and exploring what other teachers are doing in their classrooms.

    Why Blogs?
    Much of our professional development does not happen in Language Arts meetings, but rather from reflecting on our own experiences in the classroom and by reading and exploring what other teachers are doing in their classrooms. The purpose of this page is to show just how effective we can be at our jobs when we are given the right tools (and the time) to do this type of professional development.
    Blogs are expression of these tools. They are one of the most reflective and easily accessed forms of PD. They provide a format for writing and reading short excerpts out of a teachers daily practice and reflections upon that practice. They also allow other teachers to comment upon and value one another in an authentic way. Please use these resources to either to explore the blogs of other teachers, or to create your own.
