For all of those people who don’t know how teachers roll, let me give you a bit of insight. After the initial rejoicing at the end of the school year, many of us use our vacation time to attend workshops or take classes to improve our practice. Those workshops may last one or two days, depending on the topic, but the thinking process lasts a lot longer. Putting all of the learning and thinking together to create classroom activities takes even more of our vacation time.
That’s been my experience, especially after the Martina Bex Comprehensible Input workshop last week in Lincoln. I’m sure I’m not alone. I spent this week rehashing and rereading the handouts she provided for us. Now I’m almost ready to start choosing vocabulary to use in my own stories. Then comes the actual writing process. I’m sure I’ll have a few false starts, but the results will be worth the time.
