Teachers Teaching Teahers #228 – A curriculum potpourri with teachers, students, and Erick Gordon – 12.08.10
We had a lively conversation on this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers
- Meet Erick Gordon the new director of the New York City Writing Project and the founder of the Student Press Initiative.
Enjoy the perspectives of a couple of the digital photographers who are in Chris
Sloan’s school in Salt Lake City, where they had just published their
student magazine, the Bulldog Press on MagCloud for the first time.
Warm to the thoughts of David
Pulling from LSU-Eunice who gives us an update on how
his students I-Search papers. In particular we invite you to take a look at this one by Vonda
Guidry: “Potential Health Effects of Food Contamination From the BP Oil Spill.” Paul Allison’s high school students and Vonda had a productive dialogue in the comments under her discussion post.
- And of course you don’t want to miss Margaret Simon’s elementary school students who have publishing on Voices on the Gulf — and who now have other ideas, as Margaret explains:
Things are good and busy. Our gifted students present a historical
play each year for first graders in the parish at The Shadows, a
plantation home on the bayou. There is much involved in preparing and
performing, so little else goes on.My student Kaylie is working on making Clover the Plover
a book. She is illustrating it using Paint on the Promethean board. I
hope to publish it on Lulu as a fundraiser for the Gulf.
more! Why don’t you drop by too? We invite you to join us every Wednesday
at 9:00pm Eastern / 6:00pm Pacific USA (World Times).
