I’m an M.A. student at Auburn studying creative writing. This blog started for a class and chronicles our journey through theories of rhetoric and composition. Many posts discuss the issue of what writing looks like in the classroom because I teach first year writing courses as part of my master’s program. I do have a background in secondary English education. I kept it up after the class because I like writing about teaching and trying to figure things out through reflection and am grateful for the comments of other bloggers.
I am also a regional coordinator for a program called Poetry Out Loud (www.poetryoutloud.org), a national program for 9-12th graders. If you teach those students, you should really check it out.
