Teacher-Researcher Conference

On May 5th, the Triad Teacher Researchers will host their first annual conference. For more information about this ambitious group, visit their website. I am excited to attend the conference tonight and plan to live-blog the sessions I attend. Here's the schedule:
6pm Welcome and opening talk by Amy Vetter and Elizabeth Chiseri-Strater
6:30 Optimal Foreign Language Scheduling in Elementary School with Morgan Sharp
7:15 Modern Poetry as a Craft with Katie Roquemore
8:00 Paidiea Seminars and Critical Thinking with Matthew Frillici
8:45 Closing and door prizes

I'm putting the first two sessions together in one live blog. I'll put the others down a little lower in this same post. Please, please feel free to join in the conversation, ask a question, make an observation, etc.
