I am attending a big gathering of English teachers* that is held every year in November. This year it is in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pernille Ripp, who created the GRA, is here, too! I went to her presentation today and got to talk with her afterwards. It was so fun to meet her in person! She is super nice. I learned that she loves blogging as a way for students to share their thoughts and ideas with others. And she loves to hear about what teachers and students are doing with the GRA. I am sharing a picture of the two of us. In case you have not seen her picture before, she is on the right. 🙂
