    1. I think you are doing amazing thinking. More and more I’m pushing students to own their learning through self-evaluation and reflection for everything they do. I’m pushing them to be narrative and not grade-centered. Good luck. You’re clearly doing amazing things, and your students are fortunate!


  1. I too have withdrawl pains and wonder what I am going to do with all the time I am not writing…Today is a post spurred by a photo my son sent to me
