That Pesky Cheshire Cat
Seems that the Cat's enigmatic response to Alice's "How do I get there?" question has a way of being correct however it catches your ear. After all...
...if you don't know where you're going, any path will get you there.
After writing (gulp) 2,100+ posts covering a wild-n-free range of topics (occasionally even a few that suggest value) here over the last 4+ years, I've been aching to re-organize my approach to this entire edu-blogging venture.
More than blog spring cleaning, a return to life as a classroom teacher (over the last year) has re-framed my intentions here. While I can't ignore that my radar remains intrigued by a wide range of ideas, I am moving forward with a much more intentional focus that taps into both my right and left brain.
To ensure success in this transition, this is the road map I'm intending to follow:
A Calendar of Topics
Monday: Hero's Journey, Classroom Literature, The Book Shelf
Tuesday: The Writing Process
Wednesday: The Student|Teacher Dynamic
Thursday: Future Think|Trends|Tech
Friday: "Big Picture" Inspiration
Saturday: School Design
Sunday: Fatherhood POV
Clarity & Practicalities
While in the past I've followed a "whatever catches my mind" posting approach, I'm actually going to be pretty rigorous re: only posting on topic days.
And pre-thinking posts, too.
Likewise, I'll organize my research, links, & brainstorming for future posts via a wiki that will allow me to keep track and develop ideas well ahead of posting.
Funny how 4+ short years of blogging can finally refine one's thinking. (wink)
