  1. I was first in line to reserve my seat to see her this coming Friday on Long Island. Can’t wait!!! I hope she brings up RT. If not, I’ll definitely ask her about it.

      1. I’m emailing my principal to see if I can. I can’t afford it, but I am going to “rob Peter to pay Paul” if need be…..I *NEED* this shot in the arm right now!!!
        AND…..I know I can get a sub, just need to come up with some sub plans for the 3rd day of NEW classes!!! arghhhh. My classes are: 1A (I can show ANY movie – they haven’t seen any of my videos yet! haha) 1B (pretty much the same here I guess) and 2B (this will be tough! this is going to be a tough class — some are from my pre-TPRS days and HATE me!! hahaha, and some are from my ‘just started THIS semester with TPRS and don’t know what the HELL I am doing!’) – but I still feel that way, hence the desire to start off the semester seeing Carol in action!!! 🙂

  2. Gosh, Ben, now teachers are creating unrealistic expectations of me. LOL
    THANK YOU for your always kinds words. 🙂 For those of you attending any seminars this week, PLEASE come introduce yourself and remind me how “we know each other.” And if possible, order warmer weather! Look fwd to seeing you…

  3. Ben said: ” We should base writing on strong, exhaustive reading and discussion, was the idea.”

    I can never hear the strong, exhaustive piece enough. Just like I can never go slowly enough, I feel I never go exhaustively enough. The siren song of the traditional textbook teacher whispers, “you gotta move on.” I have been working on rsf structures since we returned from midterms and I feel myself wanting to move on. Maybe I need to linger and extend.

  4. We saw the strongest writing on the midterm exams about the material that we spent the most time on (duh!) in terms of visual, aural, and literacy-based correlation. If we talked about it, saw pictures related to it, read about it…particularly using Embedded Reading, acted and re-enacted it we saw it show up in abundance and in detail in writing. Not just that more kids wrote about it, but that we saw evidence of what we did there show up in writings about other topics as well!

    with love,
    Laurie

  5. Personally, I really agree with Laurie on this. Reading is very good. However, when all of the other modalities are used in conjunction (visual, aural, acting/manipulating real objects/kinesthetic), language writing spills out on the paper from them in torrents.
