Congrats! We made it!

I meant to post yesterday but it was such a crazy, energy-filled day!


I hope your GP testers did super well on the exam and I hope The Global Pen has been helpful this year in providing insights and ideas for teaching globally-minded writing in the high school classroom.

I’m already generating some pretty cool ideas for next year that will tighten content while teaching writing, so here’s the short-list to look out for :-).

New & Improved Flashcard format (nod to Mya…a student who inspired this third and final version!)

Writing Portfolios

English Criteria package

GP savvy Phone Apps

Websites for building content (nod to Jess Raymer and our email jam sesh!)

Essay Scoring techniques for the classroom

…and much, much more!!

What cool lessons did you stumble upon this school year? What helped you from this website? Feedback welcome!

Got ideas? Ready to share? Send it all my way and I’ll feature you right here at the Global Pen!

Stay tuned!

Collaboratively Yours,
