After a flurry of posts, I’ve been really silent for the past two weeks or so. The end of the semester is near, and I have been attempting to figure out what the end of semester is going to look like for my students. I’ve sort-of gone off syllabus. I’ve been applying for conferences, publishing opportunities, and research grants. I’ve been doing mountains of paperwork because we’re buying a house. My kids have been sick, husband away, and Europeans visiting. And, you know, Thanksgiving.
It’s been a crazy two weeks.
But, I have also been blogging for a new education reform website, SoEducated.com. I’ve written about the seeming voicelessness of rural education, why my students think high school sucks, and asked, given all of the negative rhetoric recently, who will be our future professors? I invite you to visit the site and check out the talented and passionate writers who are contributing to the site.
More posts here to come. Until then, enjoy the rest of the weekend.
