English Companion Ning

By Donalyn Miller — September 29, 2009 1 min read

The Teacher Sourcebook features a fabulous article about the English Companion Ning (ECN), known as the “world’s largest English department.” Created by revered high school teacher and author, Jim Burke, the ECN boasts over 6000 members--rapidly becoming an invaluable resource for English teachers around the world. Offering blogs, discussion boards, and forums, the ning combines social networking features with a treasure trove of content.

During October, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child, will appear as the English Companion Ning’s featured book club title. Join me to discuss the classroom conditions that foster independent reading, share favorite books and authors, and investigate the need for reading role models both in and out of school. The book club begins on October 4th.

The opinions expressed in The Book Whisperer are strictly those of the author(s) and do not reflect the opinions or endorsement of Editorial Projects in Education, or any of its publications.
