I've been enjoying August flex time, those 5 sweet weeks between the end of my summer class and the first day of fall semester. As an educator I love this time of year because it allows me to imagine the school year ahead... dreamily. I approach the upcoming semester with a manifesto-to-self to make it all new, not to reinvent but to reshape.
I'm reshaping the blog assignment and my own blog endeavor. This first blog of mine was started as an experiment to share the experience of blogging (with a research question in mind) with my students--via "inquiry blogs," as we're calling them. I'm taking a short break to figure out what turn I'll take with this blog--a new blog? 2 separate blogs? I'm not sure yet. But I do know that I'll be blogging in the fall, and so will my students.
I'll be back with a reshaped blog during the first week of the semester. Please stay tuned.
