Chasing Content – May 2008

I’m still working on making “Best of” posts for every month that I’ve blogged. That’s why I am hitting you up with a second edition of Chasing Content this month.

Let’s look at what we were doing four years ago about this time.

Read all of the posts from May 2008. . .

or just these extra-special shiny ones.

A New Cereal on the Bookshelf – Here’s a creative project you can do with your students that will have them designing cereal boxes based upon something they have read. It’s a great idea for book reports and my students really enjoyed it.

A Visual Tour of My Run – I had the crazy idea of taking a camera along with me on a trail run one day. Who knew that it would spark an entire series of posts? There are now several dozen Photographic Tours you can accompany me on, including this very first one. Enjoy!

Nothing – There is really nothing I can say about this post. You just need to see it for yourself, and then you’ll know why it’s a crowd favourite.

The Best Comic Books – Here’s a list of some amazing graphic novels. It’s part of my Recommended Reads series. If you’ve never read a comic book before, you could start with one of these titles. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what they have to offer.

Why We Should Look at Story – We all organize events and situations into stories. We all tell stories. We all consume stories by our choice of entertainment mediums. That’s why story should be studied in detail. and why I started this small series of posts.

Thanks for Chasing Content with me!
