Kevin tagged me to continue Miguel‘s Passion Quilt meme.
Cool! Given that I have been reading about memes in Lankshear and Knobel’s New Literacies, this was timely.
So, here goes:
Images from my ENG 315: Writing in the Elementary Schools Courses, Spring 2008
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

Nice to see future teachers in the mix. Your emphasis on the writing hits home.
They have been very patient and flexible in learning to use the technology this semester! We are starting to have larger discussions about newer literacies now, so that is fun, too.
