In Honor of the National Day on Writing . . . What Else? A Writing Assignment from the Director.

By Sara Runge, October 19, 2009 12:56 PM


Charles and Tom and I are looking forward to spending the first National Day on Writing with Aggie Sullinger and her students at Grant County High School. Wherever you and your students are tomorrow, and whatever else you are doing, I hope you will set aside some time to write together, to create bodies of work for the National Day on Writing Gallery we will put up on this site soon.

And I want you to do one thing more, please:

Northern Kentucky Writing Project Summer Institute 2009 was a wonderful, amazing experience. Your participation, your work, and your writing surpassed even my wildest and most imaginative expectations. I am so proud of all of you, and so very happy and honored to be part of the special community we created together.

When you applied for admission to SI 2009, you wrote answers to these two questions:

  1. Using any form of writing you choose, please describe yourself as a teacher.
  2. Using any form of writing you choose, please describe yourself as a writer.

Tomorrow, in honor of the National Day on Writing, I would like for each of you to sit down and write new answers to those two questions, then log on to the private section of the NKWP site and post them. I believe it will be exciting and fun to see how we all have grown.

I can’t wait to read all your posts!

Permission-to-Photograph Document

By Sara Runge, October 13, 2009 7:25 PM

Some of you are planning to do inquiry projects in your classrooms that involve taking pictures or video of your students. If you do, and if you intend to publish, post on this Web site or in any other way display any of those images, you must get the specific, written permission of your students’ parents or guardians. We have developed a blanket release form (“permission to photograph and/or videotape”) for you to use for this purpose; we suggest you send it home to parents with a brief letter explaining the project and how the results—including their children’s images—might be used. If you have any questions about the form or how to use it, please do not hesitate to contact me. Click here to download the document. Click Here to download the document.
