I’ve asked you to branch out and try new things, now it’s my turn. I subscribed to Twitter last year, and have checked it for things like the earthquake in Mexico. Now I feel I need to really jump in and use it for my professional development. I didn’t want to just use it for a random reason, so after reading Sue Water’s post, taking into account my teaching assignment for next year (not only Technology Exploratory, but 8th grade Language Arts-new for me), then noticing that my Kindle had the ability to share to Twitter, I decided. I had been highlighting examples of good writing: examples of comma use, good introductions, great sentences, examples of characterization. However, I need all these things in one place to easily access them. In addition, I’d love to read others’ good examples. Soooo, the purpose of my Twitter account (tilgunas) is to gather great sentences and snippets from books I am reading. I’ll be adding like crazy during the summer, then as school starts it’ll probably level off a bit. Maybe I can get the kids to help!!
