I hope you had as good a half-term break as I had.
Quite a few people have posted on here now, and a look at the site statistics suggests that quite a few people have been looking here without posting.
I’m very optimistic about the potential for this medium to be a truly powerful tool for extending the learning, but that potential can only be realised as more of you get involved. There are weaknesses with this ‘blog’ approach, particularly the fact that you can only post by attaching a comment to a post that I’ve made. Perhaps I need to set up a message board or an email list to make it easier for you to initiate topics. Or maybe I could give you all permission to make new posts to this blog.
What do you think would be the best way of moving this forward? Those of you who are silently lurking, what would make you more willing to contribute?
I’m going to make a start at expanding the content pages, starting with a guide to the structure of English nicked directly from the ‘UniversalTeacher’ website, but presented in a form suitable for printing if you really must have stuff on paper. Tell me what else you’d like to have resources on and I’ll see what I can do.
And the incentive to keep on looking? Well, hopefully the expanding resources and comments should see to that. But just in case you need a bit more of a nudge, I’ll be giving you a test soon. I’ll put it up here in advance so that you can check your knowledge and have time to fill any gaps in your understanding.
