1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Challenge (Episode IV - A New Home)
Most Recent Update to This Page: 3/6/16
I realize you may not read ALL of these. But pick a few. And when you come across a part you particularly like, quote it or talk about it in the Comments section below. This is the 'Mutual Support' / Community part of this 'social media' thing - don't just be a consumer; be a contributor.
When I first compiled some of these for a Blue Serials weekly wrap up a few weekends ago, I hadn't realized they'd keep coming. More importantly, a number of them - before and after I began compiling - are just really, really good.
For awhile I just added them after the fact, but I should have known better. They deserve their own home - one easier to update and continue.
Here's How It All Started...
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - Anthony Purcell on Random Teacher Thoughts started something he maybe didn't quite mean to when he issued an edu-blogger challenge built around a simple series of five questions. His timing couldn't have been better - to be honest, I think we all really needed it this week. #oklaed
Here (in no particular order) are some of the responses so far. I'M POSITIVE I'VE MISSED A FEW GOOD ONES - please email me or call me out on the Twitters as you discover them and I'll add them here. There's not one of these that doesn't make me feel better about teaching in this sorry state - no matter WHERE each one was written.
