Next Sunday I will be “guest” -hosting (here) a neat feature that’s coordinated by Kevin at Kevin’s Meandering Mind. It’s called “Day/Week In A Sentence.” The idea is to boil down your week, or a day in your week, into one sentence. I think it’s ideal if you think it might be insightful or helpful to others, though that’s not necessarily a prerequisite.
You can read the most recent compilation here and another edition that was guest-hosted by Bonnie at her BLK blog.
I’ve found it a good reflective exercise for me to write, and a good learning experience to read what others have come up with.
You can either leave your sentence as a comment on this post and I’ll hold it in moderation until Sunday, or you can email it to me at MrFerlazzo@aol.com. The deadline is Saturday at midnight (California time).
I’ll look forward to reading your sentences!
Out of school because we’ve got a new President,humm,but a party of Democracy.
During this Hanukah week, I gave final exams (passed some students and failed others), hosted a great party, sang Handel’s Messiah at the Kennedy Center singalong, watched the Maryland Terrapins lose to Boston College by 3 lousy points, and one day spent 6 1/2 hours commuting to and from work by bus.
I’ve chosen Siddartha to accompany me this week, and am becoming a bit more thoughtful, slowing down in the Christmas rush, following him in his search before sleeping deeply in my soft bed.
The vet called to tell us that our dog, Bella — who has been with us for 11 years now and who has been a faithful protector of our children every single moment of every day — may not have much longer to live as the cancer moves forth ever more rapidly, but the memory of Bella will live on in this Web 2.0 world as the avatar and image of my online persona, Dogtrax.
Here is the podcast version:
I am starting to feel better, thank goodness, but still every little thing feels like so much work and I have to be gone today at a Step-Up-To-Writing training and so I have to trust my little darlings not to be little hoodlums with a sub today and I’m a bit edgy about it.
As we finish the semester, many of my students have chosen to make multimodal compositions and now comes that difficult question: how do I assess these projects?
As I created an online calendar as a gift for my mother last night I was reminded that I need to share this as school as PD, as it can lead to so many other things, PD should be fun. Cheryl Oakes
It’s not an easy week to concentrate with vacation looming but I am eagerly anticipating purchasing a new computer over the break and am looking forward to some relaxation with friends.
Learner support took on a new meaning this week as I explained to faculty staff how Moodle works; also, I completed a learning journey of my own as I created my first Voicethread.
I’ve been checking the http://www.CelebrateBlogging.com site and thinking about the impact of blogging on teaching and learning.
Snow is coming once again, but somehow life goes on and we are getting ready to see friends tonight, that’s in between guitar practice and delving deeper and deeper into new digital software…what’s life without a good post and comment?
