“All real living is meeting.”

–Martin Buber

I enjoyed meeting new faces tonight and seeing some familiar ones. I think we have the potential to be a strong learning community. I’m excited as I look forward to our work together this semester.

Following up on either or both of the questions I posed tonight:

What do you really believe about the teaching of English Language Arts?

Given that belief or beliefs, what is it you feel that you need to learn–want to learn–about reading and critical literacies (how is it, for example, that we understand what a critical literacy looks like in practice?) this semester?

Thanks in advance for your posts. I look forward to reading them. And do post them rather than add a comment. I’ve established a category for these posts called “class notes.” When you write your post you can check that category so that your post is easily tracked by category. Try it.

If you have any questions about the readings please get in touch. KES
