During the NCTE convention last month I gave a five-minute ignite talk. It was fun and stress inducing and of a different style than the other presentations and meetings I participated in while at the Las Vegas conference. Apparently, the talk was supposed to be recorded but it wasn’t. I was asked to repeat the ignite talk in a small room directly to a camera … which is weird. I tend to feel more comfortable being awkward and bumbling in front of a group of people than being awkward and bumbling in a room with one person. In any case, I’ve blogged about all three of these topics before (and I’m currently trying to write up something academic-ish about Dark Twisted Pedagogy). Enjoy!
