My latest blog post is up at MiddleWeb and I consider comics in a variety of ways. What drove this piece is realizing that while many of students read graphic novels, they don’t all understand how to “read” graphic stories. Come see what I am talking about.
Read my piece at Middleweb.
This is a project that my class did to create a graphic story rendition of one of our novels.
Peace (in the frames),
My latest blog post at MiddleWeb is about being tired, and a bit worn out, from the school year. What keeps me going some days? Poetry, and the new collection — Teaching with Heart — is a perfect companion to the long days that mark the end of the school year (we still have two and half weeks to go).
Come read my post and add a poem that keeps you going.
Peace (in the daze),
At my Working Draft blog over at MiddleWeb, I wrote about our work in the classroom with light-themed illuminated poetry and paper circuitry.
I invite you to read my observations of my students working with circuits and writing. It was pretty interesting.

I have a new post up over at my blog at Middleweb, in which I talk about teachers sharing their “technology autobiographies.” I share mine (it has to do with email and butterflies) and I invite you to share yours, too.

Peace (in the web ),
I have a new post up over at my Middleweb blog that comes from Digital Learning Day, in which I surveyed my students about their digital lives and then used Voicethread to narrate what I noticed. I invite you to add your thoughts, too.
