Reminder about waygook.org.
Since this week was the start of the new school year, it's time for the obligatory plug for Waygook.org, a site for sharing lesson plans and for talking to other teachers. I'm the second-in-command over there, and the only moderator left in Korea; an introductory message I wrote for new members back in November is here. It started out in 2006 as a glorified mailing list for Jeollanam-do public school teachers, but has grown to include people from all over the country. Feel free to visit, share, borrow, and talk, and to all you many, many lurkers . . . "Need a penny, take a penny; have a penny, leave a penny." Being the only native English speaker in school, as we almost always are, there's not many opportunities for us to collaborate and bounce ideas off one another, and in this coming semester I'd like to see a little more of that on the website.
