communication

If you read last week's entry, you know that I decided to take on a new risk in my AP Literature classes last Monday: integrating Twitter into my classroom discussion (specifically the student-led discussion known as a Socratic Seminar).Let me just start by saying that this was not perfect, but it was better than I imagined it would be, and I will definitely do it again.This was to be our first...
Taking risks has never felt like a natural part of my personality. I don't typically blaze my own trail. I look for the safe, the comfortable, the experiences I can control. This is as true in my professional life as my personal. However, this risk-averse tendency is often in conflict with another aspect of my character: the desire to improve myself—to improve my craft.

My own experience, on the surface at least, has suggested that my primary issue is time.  I have time to “dip” into DI regularly, but it is difficult for me to...
I'm never really sure how a new format for sharing a project will play out when I first begin to experiment with it. I’m not a tech proficient human who easily can make sense out of how to manipulate new technology tools. I don't see the pathway from beginning to end with the pre-programmed intuition that mathematical thinkers possess. I tend to be an experimenter- working from trial and error...
Youth practice recording, interviewing, writing, rehearsing, editing, and presenting throughout media literacy programs, but what other skills do they practice and master in these programs that will help them in life? This resource examines the life skills that young producers gain through their participation in one of two Philadelphia-area media literacy programs. As a Stoneleigh Junior Fellow...
