  • Directions for Narrative

    The post should be focused on implementation or action stories inspired by reading an AASL Publication. Please include the following elements in your narrative:

    1. What prompted you to read the book (for example, was there an urgent need or issue that you needed to address)?

    2. What resources or chapters in the book did you find most useful?

    3. Describe your 3-5 main takeaways from the book, including your “aha moment” if applicable. Was there a tool, template, or example that you replicated? Were you inspired by something in the book that prompted you to create your own unique solution?

    4. Tell the story of your implementation. Did you face any challenges? Was there trial and error involved? And of course, glow about the success and end results of your work!
