Penelope's curator insight, January 17, 2014 8:00 PM

 

I'm finding you don't normally run into a word problem until you begin the editing process--then the trouble begins!

 

Sometimes the right word will just appear like manna from heaven--ah. So sweet. Other times? Your brain zips up tight and zip, nada, nothing.

 

This article is very timely for me as I am editing my first romance novel. Life dictated I put it away for a couple of months, and now some of the errors are glaring, others not so much.

 

Here are the 5 key ways to find that right word, but you'll have to click on over to the article for full details:

 

1. Identify Weak and Repetitive Phrases

2. Brainstorm Alternatives

3. Aim for an Emotional Response

4. Get Specific

5. Don’t Settle

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Learning | Scoop.it

Teachers who work silently, don’t tweet, blog and discuss ideas with people around the world are obsolete. Teachers are no longer working locally but globally and it’s our job to share what we do and see what others are doing. If a teacher is no longer learning then he shouldn’t be teaching other people.

 

We should all be tweeting, blogging and sharing what works and doesn’t work, get and give advice to and from co-workers around the world. We should constantly be improving our craft because professional development isn’t a 3 hour workshop once a month but a lifelong process.

 

“We do not learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience.” -John Dewey
