August PD: WJPS writers workshop

Jim Davis from UNI, Cedar Falls IA, gave us lots of great articles about writing and journalism. It's time to roll up my sleeves and practice what we're gonna be preaching at WJPS. Thankfully I've been dancing around literacy across the curriculum and tech-art integration over the years. It's intersting to be on this new bridge, I'm thinking one of those old stone european foot bridges, perhaps in Paris, just becuase I like remembering them. My experiences have lead me here, more will be revealed. It's been so long since I've taken time to write by choice, not sure if I ever have, I communicate indirectly through pictures. Recently, I've learned that not so much can go without saying, if I don't want to be misunderstood. The art critique and job interview are quite different constructs for feedback. The mixing and mingling and collaborating with 12 new c0-workers is yet another learning experience. I love teaching because it shows me who I am, if I'm willing to study myself. I love teaching becuase I get to meet some awsome kids, and they make me proud of them and myself. I get to meet some great adults too, who love kids too. What I take from our time together this week is that, just like drawing, writing takes practice, duh, so here I go. I have all teh time in teh world to get better at it. Peace
