30 Day blogging challenge: curated list of posts
Having been inspired by the numerous Tweachers and Teacher-Bloggers that there are out there I thought I'd try my hand at the @TeachThought 30 day blogging challenge. As I go along I'll be linking each of my posts to this one so that they are curated in one place. I'd love for people to comment on my posts and to refer me, either via my blog or by contacting me on Twitter (@tjjteacher) to other teacher's blogs so that I can join in the conversation. I've added my blog to the Google Doc list of all those teachers participating.
I think this is a really great idea. Thank you to @bleidolf67 for dreaming up the titles.
