Podcast Episode 5

It's been a while since my last podcast (there goes my brilliant plan of one a week over the summer, huh?) Episode 5 is supposed to get me back in the groove. Some notes on Google Reader, blogs I recommend, and substitute teaching.

And if anyone has noticed, I mixed up my Pedagogy in Practice Podcast feed file with the one for the ONE Campaign in Fort Collins. It's fixed now, sorry about that.

Show notes: - National Novel Writing Month - Professor Cindy OA's new blog - on demand publishing - Google Reader (revamped!)

Last year, much to my jealousy and . . . other adverbs, my younger brother particiapated in National Novel Writing Month. He wrote an over 50,000 word novel.

As an English major, I was not very happy being shown up by some punk high school senior. But I was.

And many are. NaNoWriMo has a student novel writing program, if you're wondering what to do in class next month. I know I'd feel pretty cool writing a novel in middle or high school.
