Setting Things Up

Inservice is on Friday.  My room is a mess.  Let me back up...

Since I'm new to the school, they had to create a classroom for me.  What they did was clear out the junk room, which was once a rather sizable room.  They painted.  They ripped up the carpet.  They waxed the hardwood floor.  It looks pretty good new... old-fashioned but good.  The room was devoid of any storage or furniture aside from the standard desks, chairs, and file cabinets.  Today, I walked in and found bookshelves in my room, so I could finally start unpacking.  It's a long process moving 17 years of my career into another classroom in another state, but it'll get done. I'm not sure when, but it'll get done.

Since I'm going into a new school, there are all sorts of new things to learn: curriculum, programs, ways of doing things.  With that said, have you ever used Thinking Maps as a writing method?  I went to a short seminar on it earlier in the summer and forgot most of what I learned.  I just cracked open the teacher binder.  Give me your thoughts and ideas.  Thanks for the tips!
