#OneLittleWord (AKA #OLW)
This post has more about the origin of #OLW and links to other past posts about the purpose and process. Today’s post is a reflection on my 2018 OLW. It was evident on my blog as it literally was a part of the wallpaper: Curious!
How did “curious” impact my life?
Seeing it at least weekly on my blog kept curious in my brain but even without the constant reminder, curious is in my bloodstream. Considering life and life actions through the eyes of others has always been a part of my repertoire so “curious” was the perfect word for #OLW18.
Where did “curious” take me?
My learning journey included:
3rd Anniversary #G2Great Chat
CCIRA in Denver – February
TCRWP Writing Institute
#BookLove Summer Book Study
Iowa Reading Conference
Everyday Practices that Engage and Empower Readers and Writers – Kelly Gallagher and Penny Kittle – DSM
Nell Duke – JCCL – Cedar Falls
Read, Write, Teach – Ignite Curiosity and Instill Confidence in Freeport, Maine with Linda Rief and Penny Kittle
Reading, reading, reading . . . professional texts
Writing about my reading
Twitter chats: #ILA, NCTE, #bookaccessforall, #TCRWP, and #G2Great
What other words have chosen me?
- 2014 Transfer
- 2015 Focus
- 2016 Joyful
- 2017 Brave
- 2018 Curious
I’ve narrowed my 2019 word choice down to three . . . A Decision and More in the next post!
