Mark Chadwick (Levellers) Interview In the late 1980s, a bunch of young radicals on the fringes of the so-called ‘crusty’ traveller movement emerged onto the booming indie music scene with a band that took its name from a 17th century progressive political faction. Inspired both by popular punk bands like The Clash and by the folk acts they'd been hearing on the live circuit, The Levellers developed a fresh, dynamic sound, combining traditional acoustic instruments with electric base, thumping rhythms and a furious rock energy, as well as unapologetically politicised lyrics. In some ways, it's hard to imagine less likely candidates for mainstream musical success, but something about the frustrated, rebellious spirit of the time combined with their exhilarating live performances enabled them to build a massive audience. Their first album, A Weapon Called The Word (1990), went gold and their second, Levelling The Land (1991), entered the charts at number 14 and eventually went platinum. “It is difficult now.

All My NY Times Posts For English Language Learners – Linked With Descriptions I’ve been writing posts for The New York Times Learning Network for three years on teaching English Language Learners, and that adds-up to a lot of posts! Many include online student interactives and all include multiple teaching ideas. I thought readers would find it helpful if I put links to them all together, along with short descriptions. And, as I post new ones, I’ll add them here, too… Here’s one on El Chapo’s escape from prison. Students have to determine correct punctuation in a reading passage and then write if they believe he actually used a tunnel to escape.

Story Map The Story Map interactive includes a set of graphic organizers designed to assist teachers and students in prewriting and postreading activities. The organizers are intended to focus on the key elements of character, setting, conflict, and resolution development. Students can develop multiple characters, for example, in preparation for writing their own fiction, or they may reflect on and further develop characters from stories they have read. After completing individual sections or the entire organizer, students have the ability to print out their final versions for feedback and assessment. The versatility of this tool allows it to be used in multiple contexts. Grades K – 2 | Lesson Plan | Standard Lesson

2 Apps to Embed Writing into Student’s Life by John Hardison (from gettingsmart.com) I can’t even begin to quantify how many times I have been blessed with the challenge of working with a reluctant writer. During 14 years in the Language Arts classroom, I have heard “I hate writing” a thousand times. Sure, everybody loves those students who scan the writing prompt a couple of times just before their minds and hearts connect with the pens and bleed ink onto the paper in an effortless representation of creativity and mastery of rhetorical strategies. Taking natural writers to the next level is also a daunting task, but I will forever be grateful for those who stare at the paper with confusion and anxiety while hoping words will magically fill up the empty lines. Their apathy for writing shakes me to the core in such a way that leaves me scratching my hairless head and searching for any angle to prove how essential self-expression is to living.

How to write journalism: News writing You've gathered the information, done the reporting. You've interviewed all the people involved, the eye witnesses to the explosion, the police, etc, etc. And now you have to write the story. You have pages in your notebook of facts, observations, quotes. You may have some agency copy, some material from other media.
