Your Invitation to Join Me When I Guest Host #engchat 01/07/13

I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to guest host #engchat on Monday 01/07/13 at 7PM EST. By hosting #engchat, I get to have 100s of dedicated and inquisitive English Language Arts teachers think with me about a topic about which I care deeply. What a way to start a new year!

#engchat is the brain child of Meenoo Rami, an ELA teacher herself. She describes #engchat like this:

#engchat is a network of English teachers connecting with one and another via Twitter to share ideas, resources and inspiration. This conversation happens every Monday at 7 PM EST. To join, search for the hashtag, #engchat in Twitter or use a tool such as TweetChat to help you follow the discussion. Each week, a guest moderator shares a new idea, perspective or vision of what it means to be an English teacher.

Without further ado, here’s my video invitation to join me on 01/07/13:

Questions To Kick-Start Our Conversation:

  • How are we accounting for young people’s writing development?
  • How do you know a child is developing as a writer? What are signs of development?
  • What dimensions do we want to be paying attention to as educators? What new dimensions of writing do we want to include given advances in digital literacies?
  • What tools, approaches, resources are you using to map the development of the writers in your classrooms?

I hope to be tweeting with you soon!
