David’s Point #2

David said: I assume that Comprehensible Input pretty much sums up the theme of the blog. At some point there needs to be some parameters, I assume, so that it does not stray off to far from the main intent of the blog.
My response: This has been much discussed. I am OK with the straying – it’s just a blog and not a professional training course. But if I like the content and feel of the blog right now. We have trust, which we didn’t have before. Many of the members are quiet, but have told me in private emails that they are getting what they need in terms of professional development. I like the blend of emotional support for staying the course for what we believe is best for the kids and also the
ideas to make us better CI classroom teachers. If anybody thinks we should go in a particular direction, bring it up and we can discuss it.
