Telling the New Story One Year Later


About a year ago Dean brought Clarence, Kathy and I together to discuss David Warlick's idea of Telling the New Story of what is happening in our classrooms. Kathy teaches grades 1 and 2, Clarence grades 7 and 8 and I teach grades 10 through 12. On Tuesday Dean brought us together again to reflect on how our pedagogy has evolved over the last year and where we see ourselves headed in the future.

I really enjoy chatting with Kathy, Clarence and Dean. They're all educators committed to continual self directed professional development with an eye towards making learning more meaningful, engaging and sticky for kids. Dean has just published the podcast over on his blog. He made the graphic. Love that graphic. ;-) If you take the 65 minutes required to listen to the whole thing drop one of us a comment and let us know what you thought.

Have you heard the story about a boy in Canada named shane who was diagnosed with acute leukemia. He is also seven years old. He wants to make a record with the most birthday cards ever recived. His goal is to recive 350 million cards. Please take the time to send a card to Shane and make his dream become a reality. Share his story with your friends, family and co-workers. If at all possible, get your youth groups, church congregations, employees, neighbours or communities to set aside a few minutes to write a thoughtful note to Shane.

With every card, Shane’s smile grows...

Hiya Eddie! Thanks for the tip, that's a great idea. One of the students in one of my classes, Sandy, organized our entire school (1100+ students) to send cards to Shane a couple of weeks back. ;-)
