Greetings…Big Brother here…I seem to have censored my own site…
Just a few short days ago, I posted a note that I was planning a November workshop to be hosted at my high school. Yet now, it seems that the post has mysteriously disappeared, that I’ve somehow rescinded said offer, and am now replacing it with the following Doublespeak message:
There is no November workshop. There was never a November workshop. The workshop opportunity is in December.
What’s up with that?!
Allow me to UPDATE you on the blog post that seems to have traveled down the Orwellian Memory Hole, of the local workshop event that seems to have vaporized into thin air as if it never existed at all (yikes…the Delete button is ominously powerful, all of a sudden!)
I originally drummed up the idea for the November workshop because lots of teachers had been asking about ‘best practice’ when it comes to grading the classroom essay and scoring it according to the CIE rubric. Lots of the teachers I got to know through the Cambridge “Best Practices” workshops have mentioned that they wish the GP training was two days, as opposed to one.
Looks like we got to cash in a wish from the genie lamp…CIE might be granting us the luxury of a 2-Day, GP-training workshop after all…!!
While this is NOT yet definite, it seems likely, so there will no longer be a need for the November session! Hence the vaporized post…it’s my job at the Ministry of Blogging to make sure you get the most up-to-date information!
Stay tuned to The Global Pen for updates about a possible, two-day GP workshop through Cambridge’s “Best Practices” series. I hope to have dates, times, locations and workshop agenda details for you soon once this information firms up and pans out (#hello-idiomatic-expressions).
