Something strange happened last night…
Ruth and I, who live 872 miles apart, were sitting at our respective computers writing about the same thing: units of study.
Then, Patricia left a comment stating that she’d like to share her personal essay unit of study with other teachers.
Ruth and I began emailing back and forth and realized that we needed to set up some kind of forum for this idea exchange. Hence, we’re hosting a “Sharing Units of Study Blog Carnival.”
Here’s the scoop: Share one or more of your ORIGINAL Writing Units of Study with other teachers/coaches. In return, you’ll have access to other experienced writing teachers’ units! You must post the unit on your own blog, publish it as a GoogleDoc, or upload it to your own website. We cannot accept attachments of units to post on TWT for two reasons:
a) We don’t have enough space here on WordPress.
b) It’s your own work and therefore you should host it and claim it as your own. 🙂 (We will link to your blog post or web page that contains your unit so long as you link it using our Blog Carnival.)
Submission directions: Go to http://blogcarnival.com/bc/submit_4974.html to submit your unit of study once you’ve uploaded it to the web. Just fill out the online submission form and your unit’s link will be entered into the queue. Submission categories: Please classify the unit you submit with one of the following category names: personal narrative, personal essay, literary essay, small moment stories, launching writing workshop, letter writing, book reviews, journalism, poetry, memoir, short fiction, persuasive writing, and other. Submission deadline: Please submit your unit by Saturday, August 31st, 2008 at 9:00 p.m. We’ll round everything up by early September and will publish it on this blog.
