Morning Slicers, Bloggers and Shooters,
I am writing into the day with time to breathe and a bit more energy. My summer clothes are all washed and put away for now, and after a hectic Thursday, I’m ready for a day at Apple for some learning and then a return to gym and the weights that await me and my vacation body.
I wrote my slice yesterday surrounded by our Writing Project ’09 Summer Institute and the energy was infectious, as usual. Even though we didn’t get down to the Hudson, our lunch walk allowed my camera to find stripes everywhere. Good thing I wasn’t still in sandals and shorts.
And as the day ended I couldn’t help but wonder if we would be continuing as a writing project now that Arne Duncan is out to chop us down. Imagine, our greatest threat to authentic teacher PD and our National Writing Project network is coming from the administration that is attempting serious educational reform.
Are they reading the latest work of Diane Ravitch?
Okay, I need to stay positive and smiling…
Weekend is coming….
