Who should we follow?

Now that Lauren’s adolescent lit class is over, I have a scant two weeks to put the finishing touches on my children’s lit module. Harvard has a new web tool, so I have to re-create my old links page from scratch, starting with social media recommendations.

The problem is, I’m a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to Twitter.

Who should teachers be following? I’d love to hear about your favorite (useful, entertaining) tweeters, bloggers, Facebook posters, etc.

If you can, tell us WHY you like each one, too.

Thank you!


P. S. Here’s another question: Does anyone still use listserves?

  1. I write a blog that explores a family’s encounters with quality children’s literature.
    I hope to sit in on one of your classes (with HSED’s permission of course) to let the goodness of minds thinking about children’s literature wash over me.

  2. Just to skim the surface: Pretty much any publisher (@Candlewick, @Scholastic, @HarperChildrens, etc…), authors (@KateMessner, @JackieWoodson, @Libbabray…), library/literacy/bookish folks (@MrSchuReads, @MatthewWinner, @libraryvoice, @diversebooks). Once you start following people, Twitter will give you related suggestions. Enjoy the rabbit hole!
