Recently, I shared Will Richardson’s post Writing to Build a “Larger Conversation” with our faculty. There had been quite the maelstrom after our division head posted Tweeting vs reading: The row over technology in primary schools from The Independent.
After a few hours of no response, I spoke to an English teacher about Writing in the 21st Century by Kathleen Blake Yancy, and possibly extending her curriculum to address writing in the 21st Century. The response I got was less than heartening as she stated that she had no interest in teaching how to write a blog or email. I wonder if seeing the types of writing required by BestBuy would change her mind or freak her out.
