Getting connected: online & with community members
What if there was a way to spend less time grading your students’ writing, while also providing a valuable writing experience for them?
What if there was a way to bring interested, wise community members into your classroom on a regular basis? I think I discovered a way: student blogs with readers from the local community.
Lessons learned from a film festival
Every year, I watch in awe as students take ownership of their films and are challenged to exercise new skills and proficiencies: self direction, creative expression, and problem-solving. I’ve seen this assignment throw some of our most academically-capable and motivated students off-balance.
I’ve also watched many diverse groups pull together to create some powerful, beautifully-shot films.
This may be the most challenging course we offer.
