I teach 6th.... the Talent 21 is a grant that gives each of my students laptops next year. It stands for teachign and learning essential new technologies of the 21st century. We have now been encouraged to have our classes sign on and utilize a ning... how do your students use it?
I used this site a few years ago for my classes..but then the district put a stop to it...now that we are participating in the Talent 21 grant we are back up and running. Have you used this with your classes? If so, I would love to see the page!
I am in Paterson for 5 years now...teaching Literacy no less!!
I would love to catch up...and pick your brain..
I must confess that I regularly check your class assignments (even ten years later I use you as my mentor!!)
