Some bad news came this week, as some of fans learned that The Reflective Teacher is taking a break from blogging. He has been incredibly generous with his time and resources and got many of us working each week on his Boil Your Week/Day Down to a Sentence. It’s an idea I have used many times.
In the past, I have guest-hosted the feature for him, and I told him I would continue to take the reins of the weekly venture, as best as I can, in his honor, until the day he returns to blogging.
So, if you would like to participate, here is how it works:
- Reflect on your week
- Write a sentence that captures the week
- Use the comment feature on this post to write your post. I hold it in moderation until all of them are submitted.
- I collect them all and then publish as a post over the weekend
- If you want to podcast as well as write, please do (please?) One resource is PodcastPeople, which allows for easy, no hassle podcasts. Just create a show and provide the link in your post.
So, go ahead and give it a try. It’s yet another way to connect with teachers around the world.
Peace (in reflection),
PS — Here is my Week in a Sentence, as a sample.
I heard some news this week of two of my former students who have troubled pasts and difficult lives and the news wasn’t good — both are already labeled behavioral problems and both are on the edge of the world, about to drop — just as I predicted and just as I strongly warned about last year, to no avail.
