If you are joining me in this space from my previous blog Walking to School, welcome! 

New readers are invited to visit the old site and browse through the postings which focus primarily on education policy in the 21st century United States--from the perspective of those on the receiving end: classroom teachers.

This new blog features teaching practice, with an emphasis on all literacy skills—but especially writing—for every student in every content.  I hope you find something worthwhile. 

Please engage!  The best learning communities are vibrant, with everyone learning from each other. Share your ideas and experiences in the comments section--and answer teaching practice questions that still puzzle us all.
