We need to get back to thoughts like these

23 Sep

This is the first real post on this new (but old) venture, and again, as will normally be the case, I am using Windows Live Writer to do it.

I have decided to open up this specialised but informal blog to supplement the two I have on WordPress: English/ESL — and more and Lines from a Floating Life.

Yesterday on Lines from a Floating Life I mentioned that I had bought, among other things, Andrew Metcalfe and Ann Game (eds) Teachers Who Change Lives (Melbourne University Press 2006) “to make me feel good about being a teacher.”

I have been browsing, and I am happy to report the book is totally unscientific, without statistics or hard facts to back up anything it says — and yet I venture to suggest it may be one of the best books I have read for many years on what good teaching really is about. I will tell you more next time.
