Hi everyone, the Twitter poll resulted in a Friday, 07/12 release date (tomorrow!). Here were the official results: Wednesday 33%; Thursday 25%; Friday 42%.
I might do more polls like this in the future because it's another way to interact and collaborate with you all, which is something I'm really trying to make a priority for Pedagogue. I like knowing who's listening, what people are taking away from the episodes, how people are re-imagining their teaching and classrooms. Those are all things I want to hear about, things I care about, so please feel free to post, tweet, or comment below these blog posts.
I'm excited to share this new episode with you all tomorrow. This is a great episode for those of us interested in incorporating a social justice based approach to teaching writing, and for those of us interested in building community partnerships and having our classroom work with local organizations.
I'll be writing a post next week about the resources mentioned from Episode 3: Stephanie Vie (like I did for the Mike Rose episodes). Vie gave us a lot to think about in terms of professional/faculty development, and some real practical ways to help foster and support writing in our programs and departments, such as starting a reading/book club with our colleagues. Stay tuned for that post.
Thanks for caring,
Teachers talking writing
