schools need to be able to provide high-quality instruction in both word-level and comprehension skills in order to meet the diverse needs of students who continue to struggle with reading in late-elementary, middle, and high school
and it occurs to me that this statement appears perfectly okay. But is it? If literacy is communicating and comprehending using a medium, then isn't… Continue

Which is more powerful, a service or a community? This idea came up during the last ETT Community Meeting. A service was defined as a fully funded entity like your landline or your local hospital or even your community college. A community was defined more like a bunch of people who contribute to each other's learning. A community is an entity with which you can engage, and by engaging, learn.
The difference is both a but murky but at the same… Continue

A couple days ago I challenged people on Twitter and here I repeat my challenge. In these last days before summer, I challenge you to produce an audio book with students! Then disseminate!! There are numerous tutorials on how to do this and I won't repeat that here. Basically, all you need is something with which to record and students reading their original works. Why not have each student create a story? That project works in well with many content… Continue

I am assigning the following for our last day in class. Tell me what you think...
1. Contact another person. Verbal speech will disqualify you.
2. Find out what your contacted person had for breakfast today.
3. Show their answer to me in order to get your points.
4. Post their name/pseudo, location, relation to you, & how you contacted them on your blog.

2 points = someone in this school
3 points = someone in Maryland
