I started this blog in 2007 as place to write about my writing class lessons in a way that my students or others could adapt or use the lessons. It now continues in that role, after several iterations of purpose:
- 2012, I was honored to participate in author Kate Messner's Teachers Write online Writing Camp. This blog held my writings, again in a way that my students or others can also learn more about writing, which is my goal for myself.
- 2013, the blog transformed into a resource for things I have read, and perhaps a few lessons examples.
- 2015, I revamp it again, as I am always learning, to consider writing ideas and cross-post with Ask What Else, another blog reflecting on teaching. It may even become a collaboration with other writing teachers.
- 2016, return to a place to write about my writing class lessons in a way that my students or others could adapt or use the lessons.
As always, I welcome comments and suggestions that are helpful in their ideas. This site is designed as a model for students, and online civil discourse (digital citizenship) is a priority.
Thanks for stopping by!
