  1. So true! Why shouldn’t we teach students to analyze the media that permeates their lives? It’s just as useful (and sometimes moreso) than teaching them to analyze texts from hundreds of years ago).

    • Hi Catherine. I quite agree, though of course for a minority of students the analysis of recognised literary texts is a perfectly valid study. I just don’t think it should be the benchmark for literacy standards, as it has too narrow a focus. On another note, your comment was timely as I am preparing a writing workshop and I have just had a look at your own blog – a fantastic resource for teachers. Many thanks!

  3. Hi Bill! Thank you so much for your great presentation at Madrid Transmedia Living Lab in Madrid, and first of all for your great human values. We still have a long way to go, but a little work now can go a long way in paying for an education tomorrow. It is definitely an amazing journey!
