A Professional Learning Community Made Easy

english companionMost of us who are psyched about teaching can muster enough enthusiasm to get us through the most trying times. But it's comforting and enlightening to dialogue with like-minded individuals once in a while, and the Internet lets you reach out across the world to do that.

If you haven't already found it, I suggest you get hooked up with The English Companion Ning. Tons of blogs, forums, and groups for seeking and sharing ideas, sites, and resources. I dare you to spend just ten minutes there and not come away with a new link, lesson, or at least a laugh. If you're looking for an approach for a book study or suggestions for a thematic unit, this is a great place to get in touch with professional practitioners like yourself. Jim Burke  and the members of this Ning do some good work!
