Time for another link round-up: Memorial Day edition! A reminder that there's an email subscription form at the bottom of this post, so you can get the Heinemann Link Round-Up delivered to your inbox every week. This is the last reminder I'll give you, so you're on your own.
These links are interviews with educators, posts from our authors' and friends' blogs, and any interesting, newsworthy item from the past seven days. Check back each week for a new round of finds!
During the month of May, we enter a phase of reflection. The end of the year brings challenges of antsy students but also the anticipation of both celebrating learning and envisioning a classroom of new ideas for next year.

“The question, “What is the purpose of schooling?” may be the most important one we can ask at this point in history. The answer will determine whether our graduates will perpetuate (and perhaps escalate) the problems we face, or whether they will have the knowledge, motivation, and tools to solve them.” – Zoe Weil
