Winter Break Thesis work

Happy New Year!

I now know that the deadline for thesis submission is April 15, so that is my finish line. I am determined to push to complete this project by then, and I want to get a lot accomplished before I go back to school on January 4.

Dr. Zamora shared some information about using remix in the classroom and I will continue reading about how to make these outside of the box ideas work while still adhering to the standards and formative assessments and all the other things high school teachers have to do. I am going to work on the new lesson plans this week and begin putting together a website and also move into the theoretical grounding of the project.

I asked my family to help me come up with ideas for this project’s website. The winner so far is “write out of my mind” or “write out of your mind” or something that indicates outside of the box ideas for teaching writing … I am still open to new suggestions and looking for a good format for the website.
