I’m looking at the possibility of using Book Taco in my classroom. Has anyone used it? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

What is this?

Book Taco provides questions about books to help assess student comprehension of what they have read independently. It seems a lot like the AR (accelerated reader) quizzes students can take through Renaissance Place.

Does anyone remember using Philosophical Chairs as a strategy in the classroom? You know, the one where we teach kids to make a claim based on the evidence they've gathered, then express it in a respectful manner, followed by hearing what the other side has to say, listening with ears open to the facts presented and being prepared to change their mind should they hear compelling evidence to do so? I certainly hope they cling to that rather than mimicking the actions of their predecessors. 🤦‍♀️

How to recover from burnout? I was managing personal issues, working on a side-hustle, looking for new jobs. Always feel like I have to be looking for the next thing, achieving something, and punishing myself to do so. Then I had a breakdown a few weeks ago. Since then I have been working a few hours a day, sleeping 9 hours, spending a lot of time watching shows and lying in bed. I finally feel like my mental health might recover. But I feel guilty that I’m not working toward anything.
