From now on, my writing will occasionally be appearing on The Dock, an Anabaptist website offering resources to Christian educators. I’m not sure why, except that they asked and I said yes.
The idea for The Dock came from the Conservative Anabaptist Education Committee, and was developed in partnership with Faith Builders Resource Group (read more about both groups’ mission here). The purpose of The Dock is to link educators together and offer helpful information, advice, and connection. On the site, you’ll find audio and video clips, a blog, discussion forums, and more, on topics relevant to Christian education in all forms.
Here are some subjects you’ll find addressed, in video or writing:
What Should You Expect? Advice for New Teachers
Technology and Our Children: Addressing a Crisis
To Keep Their Attention Keep Moving: Ways to Call on Students
Humor in the Classroom
Four Classic Books for a Teacher’s Summer
Though aimed primarily at full-time educators, The Dock is broadening its focus to become useful for parents, school board members, homeschoolers, and more. I write from a mother’s perspective, not a teacher’s. Here I write about Raising Children Who Love to Read.
I hope you’ll enjoy accessing what’s offered on The Dock, or passing the info on to the teachers in your life.
Awesome, Shari! I’m so excited that you’re branching into this new forum! I’m pretty sure they are after both your wit and wisdom.
Thank you, Janelle. I’m laughing. I wish I thought as highly of my talents as you do. Hahaha. ❤
I love it! Are you going to notify us here of new posts over there?
That is a good question. I have not decided for sure how I will handle it. I can re-publish my work here, after a suitable time lapse. 🙂 I don’t really like continuous cross-posting, so we’ll see… Ideas? 🙂
You’re well suited (and gifted) for this position. Thanks for bringing The Dock back on my radar. I think of it mostly as a tool for school teachers but it does look like a great resource for parents as well.
