This is my attempt at being more reflective. I originally tried keeping a journal, but as both the writer and the audience, I did not find it effective and did not write very regularly. When I shared my entries with my mentor teacher and received feedback, my attitude towards reflection changed. So now I publish my reflections, because even the idea that other people might read my writing affects my attitude towards writing and reflection. And the fact that I publish to the Internet means I think more carefully about the specific things I post. Additionally, participating with education-related communities on Twitter have also majorly impacted my reflections, for the positive.
Teacher Off Topic is a family-friendly podcast where a teacher answers interesting questions by kids with bad timing (and goes on other tangents).
It is not currently being updated. I just wanted to figure out how to do it in case I ever incorporate podcasting into the classroom!
