|Join the fun of the March Slice of Life Challenge at Two Writing Teachers|
I am a Twitter edchat addict. I admit it. I actively participate in several and I lurk around the corners of several others.
I try to be very open minded whether participating or lurking. It's hard to really understand context sometimes in 140 characters. But a tweet yesterday made me stop and write this post.
A high school English teacher tweeted that she didn't know how to teach writing.
I had to digest that.
I still don't get it.
A high school English teacher.
Doesn't know how to teach writing.
I immediately suggested Penny Kittle's Write Beside Them and Kelly Gallagher's Write This Way. These two books have transformed my Creative Writing Classroom.
And of course, this slicing community has spoiled me. Everybody writes!
I'm trying to understand. I'm trying to keep an open mind.
But I still don't get it.
