Thank you to all the participants of the July 13-15 teaching workshop in Seattle for making the session both productive and fun (it wasn't all about the shoes!) They have suggested that we use this weblog to share links, rubrics, articles, tips on teaching, etc. I will post requests for specific information on a regular basis (such as asking that you share your makeup policy or a rubric you use to grade student presentations) and ask that you respond in the comment section so that everyone can benefit. Also, feel free to e-mail me if you want to do a "national survey" on any particular topic.
To start with, the Director, Tony Irving, is trying to decide where to schedule the Chautauqua workshops for next summer. So far, we are considering New York City for Workshop II in June and Vancouver for Workshop I in July. Please use the comment section to let me know if you think these sites work or if you have other suggestions.
