New Edutopia post: The Power of Project-Based Writing in the Classroom

By on February 14, 2012

It seems like it’s been forever since I wrote an actual post for my beloved Tweenteacher site!  But I guess it’s a happy problem as I’ve been writing here and there in the edublogosphere for these past couple of weeks.  Nevertheless, I figured I’d at least continue to share what I’m doing and writing while gathering up my lessons and thoughts for a new post soon.

My latest post for Edutopia just went live. It picks up where my post, “Choosing a Topic for our TED.com Speeches” leaves off. ?In this case, it follows the project to its end, sharing how it translates to the testing world.

The Power of Project-Based Writing” discusses the fear I had ditching test prep in lieu of what I think is more important: life prep.  Would teaching what I know is more important still translate into their test scores?  Read my newest post for GLEF and find out!
