At reThink ELA, we not only want to connect with English teachers around the world, we'd like to see you connect with each other, as well. As colleagues, we can work together to rethink what it means to teach English literature and writing in a changing global economy and with diverse groups of students.
With this goal in mind, we are collaborating to start a new Twitter chat just for English teachers who want to engage in reflective, collaborative practices.
Just login to your Twitter account and be ready to chat at 8 pm CST on Dec. 7. We'll use the standard Q1/A1 format.
Our first topic is speaking and listening standards. If you have any questions you'd like to see us include on our list, feel free to reply to this blog post, or send us a direct message on Twitter.
I am a secondary English Language Arts teacher, a University of Oklahoma student working on my Master's of Education in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum with an concentration in English Education, and a NBPTS candidate. I am constantly seeking ways to amplify my students' voices and choices.
