It's summer (or so close we can taste it)!
When summer rolls around, it means only one thing: summer book clubs! And what's a better way to continue learning about learning than reading the book, Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning?

Join the Conversation with Teachers on Facebook and FlipGrid
With our communities on Facebook and FlipGrid, you don't even need a local book club – join us online! Our Facebook group dedicated to Make it Stick is a great place to join, swap strategies, and thoughts. Our FlipGrid has specific topics, one per chapter, so you can find exactly what you're looking for.
Never heard of FlipGrid? We're in love with it (and they didn't pay us to say that)! It's a fun relaxed way to engage in retrieval practice. Students (and teachers) post short selfie videos (2 minutes or less). That's it! No account needed, completely free, you just jump on and watch, add, or respond to a video. You'll be surprised how much fun it is to retrieve.
Note: Our FlipGrid community requires a password. The website is flipgrid.com/makeitstick and the password is "makeitstick!" (without the quotes). If it asks, the Flip code is makeitstick. Let us know if you hit any snags.
Thanks to many on Twitter who got us hooked on FlipGrid, especially Matt Miller, and a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to our FlipGrid this spring! More than 200 videos and more than 3,000 views. Wow!
