Take 5--A Reason for Collegiality
"Could you help me with a blog?"
"Should we come up with a list of titles for del.icio.us?"
"I am wanting to start a WebQuest, what do you suggest?"
Questions like these have been the new conversation in the department; a new element added to English teachers' vocabulary, but more importantly, new ways to engage students. What has been so wonderful about CIT is excitement for what we're doing. Technology often is scary for many, but with our energy and willingness to try new modes, our success becomes contagious. My Take 5 for today is one that is of gratefulness--perfectly appropriate as I head into Thanksgiving break. I am thankful to be involved with the Curriculum Innovation and to share an inspired, re-energized paradigm of teaching, where we get to be the students.
