more on blogs and teaching

I follow the blogs and social networking updates of a number of teachers around the world. They inspire me and and ask current and difficult questions about teaching and learning, often whilst willingly sharing ideas for working with students. Often these ideas are about attempting to make teaching and learning environments that give students the best possible chances of developing their voices — creative spaces that inspire, challenge, and help us to question our assumptions about the things we think we understand, and the things we might like to understand.

One such teacher — whom I have never met — is Shelley Wright, who teachers at secondary school level in Moose Jaw (which could only ever be the name of a place in Canada). At face value, our teaching practices have nothing in common: secondary versus tertiary, science vs (very) liberal arts, either side of the Atlantic pond …

And yet Shelley’s direct and very personal writing about her experiences of working with the students in Moose Jaw (just wanted to write that again) is provocative, inspiring and filled with possibilities for working with people who are curious about learning and ideas.

Thanks Shelley.
