The internet is hooked up at the new house! This means more pictures and I can get back up to speed for my ENG 479 class so here it goes. There will be bike pics between peer reviews to keep everyone happy.
and one pic of a baby with oatmeal all over its face. That is a portrait if I ever saw one. (not my child)
John's Indy Teach Revelations: Best practice to me had only an application in the business world. Working in sales we used it as an overall tactic to keep the customers happy and make money. John's presentation put a different spin on it for me. I now view Best practice as any method or means of providing an effective classroom setting. The outcome would be kids learning to become better writers. It also made me think about different classroom settings and workshop methods. This is a very valuable tool as an educator and should be utilized.
Brian's Indy Teach Review: The journal and writing prompts were fantastic. The process through each one tied in well with the next. Writing from personal experience is very powerful and as the prof stated, writers are not separated from their own lives.
GOOD LUCK TEAM ACTIVE RACERS AT ITHACA!!
