I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything since August. In making the transition to a new school and trying to "pilot" all the tools I was studying and learning about since last spring, the use of this space has dropped to a lower part of my priorities. The BlogMeister web log with my new students has taken up my free time. I don’t mean writing my own articles but getting through the the thirty to forty minutes worth of reading of my student’s writings per day. I can’t say I mind. The web log has taken root and like a tree I’ve tried to nurture it by as quickly as possible posting the student’s writings and comments. Many of my students still haven’t internalized the skills and need to proofread and edit carefully their own writing.
