Three engraved images for the Teacher’s Resource Expo…

Another addition to the project Ride the Seven C’s Teacher Expo

Engraved messages--abolish war, I understood, shaking a world

Ask one or more of the following questions:

  1. What could you do to ‘shake the world’?

  2. What might have inspired a person to make these engravings?

  3. If you had to make an engraving to accompany one of these, which one would you choose and what words would you add?

Note: In the expo, these are three separate image files.

Seriously, I don’t plan on finishing it. I’ll just keep adding ideas, audio, video, mini-lessons, photos for classroom use, writing prompts, concept lists [think ‘supercharged brainstorms’], chapters to my book [see below], and author and characters musings, …there will be more.

And what’s with those seven C’s?

  1. Content
  2. Collections
  3. Courses
  4. Curation
  5. Creation
  6. Collaboration
  7. Chronicle


I mentioned my book…

After two decades as a classroom teacher and additional years in instructional technology [and plenty of years as a writer], I often toyed with the idea of:

What if a teacher with nothing to lose designed
her own year of curriculum and activities?

That question is the premise for my book-in-progress–Something Different This Year–found in the 7 C’s Teacher Expo.


Where is all this content coming from?

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been creating without compiling or publishing.

This site and the expo will be my conduit to what I hope you will find helpful and entertaining.
