Chasing Content – June 2013

Chasing ContentIt’s time for another edition of Chasing Content!

Read all of the posts from last June . . . 

or just these favs . . .

Daredevil Reboots

Comic creators love to recreate origin stories. We’ve seen the origin of Daredevil retold four times so far, once from the legendary writer Frank Miller. But I much prefer Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s take in Daredevil: Yellow.

Reflect Now to Improve Your Teaching Next Year

I know that I am already thinking about the first day of school in September. This is the perfect time to stop and take count of the things that worked well this year and the things that didn’t. As teachers, we should always strive to improve our own practice and student learning.

Legendary Writers Working With Pictures

We live in a society that is becoming more and more visual. It makes sense to combine words and pictures in this day and age. I’m glad to see there are some brilliant writers working with pictures, either in comic book form or in picture books. I love this medium!

Exams, Grades, and Marks Miss the Point

It’s time to do away with arbitrary ways of assigning worth to school work. The worth is in the work itself and not a letter grade or percentage. I wish I could throw away marks entirely and provide descriptive feedback to my students instead. That would be so much better.

Running the Devil’s Creek Trail 

I dared to run this trail. See what I did there?

You can see my entire route with some beautiful pictures.
