Participate in the SAANYS-Graphite Field Note campaign! Graphite™ - a free service for educators from Common Sense Media that provides detailed and unbiased ratings and reviews of apps, games, and websites to help educators choose the best products for classroom use. In addition, educators who join Graphite (it’s free) can contribute “Field Notes” about how they used a product in the classroom and whether they found it to be effective with students. Starting on Monday, November 25, members of SAANYS who contribute two qualifying Field Notes on Graphite will receive a $20 Gift Card as thanks. For details on how to write a qualifying Field Note, read this blog post on Graphite. To receive the $20 Gift Card, you must fill out this online form after you’ve submitted your reviews. Questions?

Online Book StudyLink: Register online
Handling so many initiatives all at once and supporting your teachers with implementing the Common Core requires administrators to promote a positive culture. Carol Dweck's Mindset will help you gain ideas on how to promote a safe risk-taking environment and examine the differences between a growth mindset (people who are open to learning) and a fixed (those who are closed to it) mindset. This book has been highlighted on the www.engageny.org website as a book to read this year for administrators. We will tackle assigned chapters each week. Hurry, space is limited!
