For our high school and middle school summer book read, our faculty read "Courageous Edventures: Navigating Obstacles to Discover Classroom Innovation" by Jennie Magiera. On August 12, 2021, we spent an hour together reflecting on the book and collaboratively creating slideshows in which we made our thinking visible. Check out this combined slideshow of all our slides, reflections and questions!

How Were These Slide Templates Created?

Alice Keeler (@alicekeeler) created a Google Script which automates the creation of separate Google Slides in the same slideshow, using student names on a roster you've made in Google Sheets.
