I’ve blogged already about my writing process, but not as much about my teaching process, how I figure out how I want to teach, what kinds of plans I make or assignments I design. I did an assignment recently with my high school juniors that I thought would be an interesting example– a project where the students assumed characters in The Great Gatsby and interacted with each other via a Facebook-style interface on my own faculty webpage.
