Authenticity in the Classroom
I love when I can use other parts of my life in my classroom work. It makes me feel good to engage my whole self as part of my practice. Whether it's baking a favorite recipe for a party, using my camera skills to document a poetry slam, or incorporating my travel experiences into a writing prompt, I like the feeling of sharing my world with my students.
This week I made a fun series of writing prompts with pictures I've taken around the world. I posted it as a Thanksgiving freebie if you'd like to try it with your students too.
How do you use your whole self in your practice?
