About

Hello! My name is Christina and I work at the National Writing Project and co-direct the NWP Digital Is project. My writing project roots are based at PhilWP, the local writing project in Philadelphia. I also have been a long-time volunteer and board member of the local Spiral Q Puppet Theater, which in all it's joyous creativity and commitment to social justice, also deeply informs all that I do.

The World of MathCraft: the Inquirer (the “Inquirer” is the 2014-15 version, each year the storyline and quests changes) project is a game-based math learning experience that is integrated and aligned with Common Core Math standards (http://www.corestandards.org/Math/) that take place at school, at home, and in collaboration with the Intel Computer Clubhouse.  The program utilizes a “Flipped Classroom, “ which inverts traditional learning/teaching – students build skills online (utilizing resources such as the Khan Academy), at home or outside class, and then engage in a math concepts/gaming based interactive platform with the help if the instructor while in class. 

Lessons and storylines as well as badges and other support materials can be found at http://1drv.ms/1J6dyCX

I’ve seen this before. You pull back a curtain, and a ghost or a ghoul jumps out at you. I’ve been in a haunted house, and felt the exciting moment when you turn a corner and find a rush of adrenaline, and an exciting skip in your heart. But this is a different feeling. Instead of pulling back that curtain and finding a ghost or a zombie, you find a friend. A friend lying so still that all the memories of your time with them fade away, like it was a dream all along. And you’ve just woken up to find that none of it was real. But the reality pierces your heart. It’s October 30th, and your friends are paying to find death. But when you look death straight in its face, you can never return to the acceptance of the unknown. When you see with your own eyes, a person with no soul, it’s hard not to say “where did they go?”

I wish that time could halt.”
