We have discussed many topics over our last sessions in Inspired Writing. ( Prewriting, Drafting, Editing, Mindsets, Fishbowl Discussions, Teacher websites, Blogging, TPACK, SAMR, Gradual Release Model...) What have you used? What are you planning on using in the future? What do you have questions about? What ways are you supporting writing with technology? How have the first 2 months of school looked like in your classroom. Have you tried anything new?
As this school year comes to a close, it is time to take a look back on all that you have accomplished. As a teacher you have changed, your classrooms have changed and as an educator you have grown. For your final blog response, we would like you to reflect on how this year has changed you and your classroom. The "ups" and the "downs", the successes and the "I would do different next times". Then talk about how you plan to continue your professional learning next year. What resources have you developed? What contacts have you made? What networks will you take advantage of?
Thank you for a great year and never stop learning!
