New learning opportunity this month: 

Students are going to choose how & what they learn in my room (within our framework, of course), all based on their own strengths & weaknesses, so their learning and my teaching is tailor-made for each student... 

So, I want to set up an adult 'idea sharing network,' because we often ask other teachers but rarely ask previous students... (teachers, I want you to participate, too, if you want to, and I will share everything with you!)

and this is where you come in... if you have ever been in school, or have known someone in school, please suggest (below or in a private message) something you think is important in/to education today:
- what would you like to see students learning in English class
- what do you think is important/fun/helpful when learning
- how did you learn best (listening, writing, reading, viewing)
- anything else you would like to offer

Thanks for sharing!

Just so you know - Class #1 is VERY excited to be doing this... they happily chose their novels today and can't wait to start in their groups. They are looking forward to 'their learning time' and are already choosing their next tasks. I am excited that they are excited to learn.

Harley's TravelBlog

Mom's dragging me around again. I'm the famous one here, so you may as well hear it from the dog's mouth.

I have fans wherever I go. Everyone wants to pet me and talk to me. Mom tries to make conversation, God love her, but there is only so much you can say about dog food and grooming.


As well, I thought this was supposed to be a fun trip. Being thrown into a bag, zipped up and stashed under a seat for hours isn't my idea of fun.

Just sayin'.

Also, trying to set me up with a girl dog by making us sit together isn't going to work with me. She was a savage. Put that bitch on a leash! I had to get out of there. No one touches my privates except my bears and Cookie Monster is gone now so that part of my life is over. Stranger Danger, girlfriend.

Now we are waiting in Toronto. Every dog in the world has smelled me and howled at me. I'm shaking like a leaf but thank God I'm in mom's arms and not trapped in the bag. I like the bag, just right now I like to be snuggled.

In a few hours, I will be seeing my nan and grandnan. They better have treats and snuggles when I get there. This has been a long, hard road!
