Bread Loaf Teacher Network Magazine, Spr 2002
This theme issue on networked teaching and learning contains 11 articles written by teachers of English and language arts in Bread Loaf's primarily rural, teacher networks. Most of these narratives describe how teachers have taught writing and literature using online exchanges or teleconferencing involving students in different locations and grade levels. Articles are: "Pass the Poetry: A Fine and 'Freaky' BreadNet Exchange" (Lucille Rossbach); "Exploring Language, Identity, and the Power of Narrative" (personal narratives by bilingual students) (Ceci Lewis, Mary Guerrero, Lusanda Mayikana, Michael Armstrong); "Exploring the Common Ground: Authentic Voices on Line" (Peggy Turner); "Picture This! A Herculean Collaboration" (Vivian Axiotis); "Reading and Mind Reading: Networked Discussion of 'Beowulf' on BreadNet" (Anne Elrod); "Avoiding the Pitfalls of Peer Editing on Line" (Judy Ellsesser); "'Can We Do That Exchange Thing, Too?'" (interactive teleconference on "Romeo and Juliet") (Michael Atkins); "Cross-Age Networking Reconsidered: When Students Become Teachers" (Gail Denton, Rebecca Kaminski); "Service Learning and Curriculum Content: The Merging of Old Ideals" (Jeff Loxterman); "One Writer's Beginnings: A Reason To Teach" (Patricia Parrish); and "Shape Shifting: When Students and Teachers Switch Roles" (Anne Decker). This issue also contains reports from state meetings of teacher networks, announcements of member activities and achievements, and lists of network members. (SV)
