Off Topic

Writing is a skill that comes with practice. Every morning I read over the posts that I wrote the previous day. I am always shocked at how poor my grammar is. Most of the writing I do at work is on performance reports, which require a very specific "bullet" style of writing. Ironically this is an education blog, where I expect a great number of my readers are teachers and all of them are college educated. I suppose practice makes perfect...

By the way... D-Ed Reckoning has a great post on background knowledge and how kids need to know basic facts in order to learn new things. I think it relates nicely to my post yesterday on social studies in elementary school.
