Morning Slicers and MOOCers:
This isn’t cheating right, to create a post that will serve more than one commitment? No…
This is week 2 of the National Writing Project’s Make Cycle and to play along you don’t have to be a member of a writing project.
But first, as I get ready for summer I have been thinking about the POWER OF THE LIST inspired by the reflection suggestions for the CLMOOC Team 1
I did spend time playing with a great app- Wordfoto to create something for last week’s kick off focus on How To…
This is the model provided by MOOC Week One Facilitator- Chris Butts
What I’ve Made So Far:
- How to Be Chris Butts – HackPad
- How To Enjoy Boise in the Spring – Thimble

- This Newsletter – Google Docs
What I’m Working On:

But I’m going to twist it:
What I Want to Remember in 2014:
The birth of two girls Eliana and Mika from my nieces Amanda and Maya in April and news of boy arriving in November to my only nephew Josh
Beaching in Puerto Rico and Cancun and then a week in Paris celebrating the coming of 65 in August.
Wonderful PD work back at the high school I attended as a kid and then came home again to kick off my teaching career and then return again to offer PD as a Hudson Valley Writing Project TC.
Continuing work with teachers at the Highland Falls School District, co-facilitating Science teachers this time around with my great buddy Andrea Tejedor.
The culmination of a year-long Slicing Collaboration with Tara Smith and her 6th graders.
Three great workshop days learning more about photography from my great friend, Sharon
Advocating for the HVWP and the NWP in DC with Jackie D.- Great road trip!
and there’s probably more that I could add…
Jack and I have our first serious chapter draft off to our team, headed by Troy Hicks. Can’t wait to get feedback 🙂
What I’m working on:
Still learning about my Go Pro with the support of Lynda.com I had lots of pieces to figure out but I do want to start using it.
Almost ready to get packing for the huge ISTE conference in Atlanta. I am joining a great band of techies- Andrea and Kristen leaving on Friday morning.
I am planning my month of July today with the HVWP team for the YWPs. I will be documenting- discovering new spots around the Hudson Valley, meeting me with great kids and TC teachers.
I have a guitar recital to prepare for coming in the Fall… I have the Playlist of my agenda all prepped on my iPod and ready for my ride today to New Paltz.
Plan for workshops to present at the Summer Institute of Digital Literacy In July, headed by Renee Hobbs.
What I want to do in the future:
I want to keep up with the CLMOOC this summer. Our site is facilitating a week in July and I will love working with Jack and Marc on this challenge. Last summer I was hoping to participate but our Summer Institute held my attention. I could just lurk.
We have a book to get ready for an August deadline.
We have trips to Maine for a wedding and a return to Israel in August.
There’s planning for a another set of PD projects at Ellenville and Highland Falls…
And now I’m exhausted. But I promise, I will be back to take on some of the challenges offered by the Northern CA Writing Project.
Time for breakfast 🙂
