Making Research Visible
I'm doing a workshop for teacher-librarians on how research/inquiry (both process and products) can be made visible -- at the School Librarian Connection upcoming conference in Prague (http://www.schoollibrarianconnection.com/prague-2016.html) -- and I'm interested to know what some of the rest of you think and do as I finish preparing.

Deadline: by September 10th, please
