Cool! Given that I have been reading about memes in Lankshear and Knobel’s New Literacies, this was timely.
So, here goes:
Why these images? Well, they highlight some of the conversations that we have been having this semester in ENG 315 about the teaching of writing. As I view these images, I am reminded both of how much I enjoy teaching teachers how to teach writing and how much these students learn over the course of a semester as they work together in class, assist in local schools, and become writers themselves. I am very much looking forward to their final projects in just a few short weeks of class.
All right, now for the fun part. Miguel provides three simple Meme rules:
- Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about…and give your picture a short title.
- Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt” and link back to this blog entry.
- Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce.
And the five people that I am inviting in to the meme:
- Andrea Zellner
- Aram Kabodian
- Bud Hunt
- Cherice Montgomery
- Leigh Wolf
- and (I know I am breaking the rules) John Lee and the whole SITE blog team
