Thank you Bernie Dodge

If you read my blog this weekend, you would have found a post I wrote in response to Bernie Dodge’s rather candid, and in my mind, somewhat unprofessional post regarding a presenter at a conference he was presenting at in Texas.

I posted a comment on his blog expressing my concern and posted here in regards to my fears that we as educators were not modelling the kind of conversation and dialouge we want our students and other teachers to engage in.

I checked back tonight to see that Mr. Dodge has retracted his post to now exclude the name of the presenter to which he was referring. He is still upset with the presenter but now his post addresses a greater problem that is worth writing about. I’m sure it wasn’t my post that changed his mind but rather, as he stated, a wiser wife.

Bravo Bernie Dodge.
