Weekend Wrapup 09/03/07 Blogging & Technology by Joel Wagner - September 3, 2007July 5, 20100 Labor Day edition. It’s raining. I’m catching up on housework. And falling WAY behind on blogs. I am going to trim my RSS subscriptions this week so I can get through them more quickly. I hate it when Google Reader says I have 100+ articles to read every day. Life is too short to squander it all online. I have fallen out of touch with other bloggers because of time commitments. What I’m going to do with today’s wrapup is send you to some friends around the web. Leave comments on their blogs. I find that leaving good comments on other blogs really helps out my blog as well. With this being said, I have turned comments off for this wrapup. Leave them on other blogs. Eric keeps a rock in his pocket. It has nothing to do with education, but go read it, and leave him comments on what you think it is and means. Miss Teacha asks, “What are your best teaching strategies?” Looks like a few people have chimed in already. See what you can contribute. Jack “Mister Teacher” Woodson suffered through the first day of school. Go cheer him up! It will make him happy to know that I actually wrote him a check for his book, so we’re making progress! I’ll drop it in the mail tomorrow. Woo. CaliforniaTeacherGuy uses poetry in a lot of his entries. He recently wrote about The Power of Poetry. What do you think? Tell him. You know you want to set up a cool WordPress.org site like I have. You know it. Bloggrrl knows it too. That’s why she points you to ninjaBlog. Thank her! She deserves it. Joel WagnerJoel Wagner (@sywtt) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.
