To be honest, this annotated bibliography was the easiest assignment. (Except for the APA formatting--I've always used MLA.) These are books, guides, podcasts, and blogs that I check in with regularly. For the assignment, I chose individual episodes or posts from the Educate podcast, the Hechinger Report, and Challenge Success, but these are places I return often. The first year of my practice was almost entirely spent reading and learning about college admissions. Now that I'm also writing and consulting, I still spend a large percentage of my working time just reading and getting familiar with this new corner of the education industry I've found myself in.
Several of the books on the bibliography, as well as a few others, I've been recommending for some time. You can see a recommendation blog post here.
