And thenyou start trying new things just so you can blog about them later, picking them apart, Periods of stagnancyand dialoging over them with strangers.in your blogging start to correspond toperiods of stagnancy in your teaching. Youstart to muse on your job when you’re stuck in traffic, in line for groceries, that sort That transformation has beenof thing.nothing but good for me and it all began on a free Blogspotblog.

  24. 24. Speaking personally, I realized one day that withoutintending to I had developed a critical communityaround my blog, a group of people who were willingto save me from my own lousy classroom designchoices. They got better at giving criticism and I gotbetter at receiving it. I also got better at posting thekind of rich, multimedia artifacts of classroompractice — photos, videos, handouts, etc. — thatfacilitated that criticism. I started to plan lessonswhile wondering at the same time, "What about this isgonna be worth sharing?" Lesson planning andblogging became hopelessly and wonderfullytangled up.
