Classroom Redesign: It’s Finally Happening at My School!

June 9, 2009


I was perusing my blog this morning, reading through past posts, and I came across this one I wrote in January of this year. I had been silent on my blog for some time prior to that post, silent because I was teaching English full-time and trying to rally my district to embrace a major […]
