I’ve been at this teaching game for a decade now, and most days–really, almost all of them–I feel lucky to have stumbled into a job that I love so much that I draw hearts on the whiteboard. Because I geek out about all things pedagogy, I spend a lot of time happily helping other teachers think about and plan classes and syllabi and exercises. So to cut down my phone/Skype/IM time, I thought I’d start a blog so that anyone looking for Creative Writing classroom ideas could have easy access.
Many of my exercises have been culled from the Interwebs over the years, and I will 100% try my best to give credit where and when it’s due. Many of the ideas here are things I’ve thought up in my imaginarium and tried, refined, revised, and tried again. I share everything in good faith, and if you do wind up putting anything from here on your syllabus, be a solid citizen and give credit.
Otherwise, I hope I have things to share that will be useful. If at any time you have ideas to share, don’t hesitate to hit up the comments. I’d also love feedback on things you try.
