The Joy Of Libraries
Introduction I just started writing this in Google Docs and then Grammarly asked if I wanted to sign up. I thought I had Grammarly everywhere but obviously not on this laptop which will be my computer home for my week in Alnwick. I wasn’t sure if I could write tonight and the lovely place I am staying in has wifi and TV issues, but thanks to DVD, a USB stick and a portable wifi hub provided by the owner I can actually write and post something, although I would have had the option of tethering to my phone.Mike Singleton - MikeydredPublished 27 days ago in Education

Introduction To Annotating Poems
Many students dislike reading poetry, let alone analyzing it, because they think they do not understand the art form or what the poem means. So, before we get into how to annotate a poem (or find meaning in a poem), let’s first look at what “poem” means and then what “annotation” means.
Oral Tradition: The Artistry Missing from English 101
In days past, much of a child's ethos development began with the bedtime stories told by their mother and father or other community members. However, most of our modern exposure to stories comes not from our elders but from media such as movies and television. In-person storytelling mostly only happens at the theater (with an honorable mention for those times when Mom has an extra glass of wine and starts talking about her college days).Shea DunlopPublished 3 months ago in Education

Advice to a Nephew
This was a list of advice that I gave to my nephew when he was about to begin high school in the late 2000s. It was in a letter that I never sent, and a part of me regrets that I did not get to at least talk to him about most of these points. I did share some advice in texts and conversations, but I recently found this page in my notes and I thought that it was only fair to share it with the rest of you. Your judgment counts…Kendall Defoe
Daebak! K-drama is teaching me Hangul
I took Spanish during high school and French in college, and languages confuse me greatly! What tense do I use? Is that a masculine or feminine object? Does the subject go first or last in the sentence? Why does a pronoun have a different verb form than the actual object? I am all mixed up in languages. Then, I decided I wanted to learn Korean/Hangul. It is one of my student’s fault. He said - I think you would like this show that is on Netflix. Hooked at Asian drama, I joined Viki and binge-watched multiple shows.Cat Turner
Moving To Canada
I am going to start this off by saying that I am not a great writer, I’ve tried to formulate my life many times into some stories, but I realized that it's far too boring. So instead I chose this form, sort of a diary I suppose. Now I am not really sure where to start and why I am even doing this so please bear with me.
