Happy New Year!

Wishing you a very happy holidays and new year from Literacy is Priceless!

Ring in 2009 with these great New Year’s lessons and printables from Teacher Vision! I am particularly fond of the printables that explain how the new year is celebrated in Korea, China, India and more!

    Happy holidays, Anna! I hope you’re doing well and have a great holidays! I enjoy reading your blog.

    (By the way, I am working on a new writing project, and I’d love any input you have. See http://www.k12opened.com/blog/archives/125. Thanks.)

    Hi Karen.

    I love your idea to create an open learning environment for writing in order to inspire children and adults to develop their writing craft. There are a number of writers groups on the web that I think would be very helpful and excited to give you feedback on your ideas. Plus, they will give you practical advice on the types of topics, features and functions they would like to see like the ones you outline above. As a literacy and expat blogger, I often visit sites like http://www.Blogher.com and http://www.expat-blog.com to find other bloggers in these spaces as well. For me, important features of an open writing space would be:

    1) Providing a forum where people can easily find writing and writers by topic–not just a blogroll, but some feature where I can get a little more information about the blog along with the link (author, purpose, feedback the author would like to receive, etc.)

    2) Tips on how to connect with other writers and readers in your space.

    3) A place where readers can discuss the types of writing and resources they are interested. For example, I would love to get feedback from other teachers about the types of blogs/news/writing they like to read

    4) Videos–lectures, interviews, public readings, etc. For example, I would be very interested in watching a video of a creative writing professor discussing character development, voice, etc.

    This is great! BTW, I assume you know this, but FreeReading.net has a number of writing lessons for teachers:
