Keeping a teaching journal is something that I started as a high school teacher in 1998. It wasn't my own decision, I must admit. It was an assignment for a course about the teaching of writing. The practice stuck since I still journal on my teaching now. Journaling gives me a way to dig deeper into how I hit the mark of what I was attempting in curriculum and instruction and more often than not, how I missed that mark. As a compositionist-rhetorician, teaching journals are a part of my research.
These days I reflect openly about my teaching on my blog, not on paper. The list below collects links to teaching journals that are most relevant to the courses and reflections that shape this ePortfolio.
