Good teaching matters; great teaching inspires. Please comment on our blog and review the site. In our posts, we consider classroom issues and practices that make a meaningful difference for teachers and learners, while never losing site of the reader and writer in us.
Do we believe that all students can learn? If so, to what extent? How can good teaching help them understand their own thinking? How can I inspire literacy in my students through my personal reading and writing practices? How does one improve as a writer?
Can they all learn to love to read and write? Is it really that important? Is my teaching of literacy authentic? Am I a reader and writer? Is my love of reading and writing evident? Can I share my experiences?
What is metacognition and why does it matter? How can my personal literacy journey shape the thinking, talent and skills of others?
These are just a few of the topics that make teaching and writing so interesting, complex, frustrating and exhilarating. Hope you will add your voice to a profession that is unlike any other, and be part of a literate community that is creative and life-affirming.
