Survey: Calling All English Teachers! Do Your Students Write Fiction?

Dear fellow English teachers,

I need your help! I'm working on a book idea that's been percolating for some time now. It's been two years since my first book, Whole Novels For the Whole Class: A Student Centered Approach was published, and since then, I've felt a big wondering come on about the role of fiction writing in the study of English Language Arts these days. In my own classroom, it is a source joy for both my students and me, and strong experiences like that in the classroom get me thinking. I'm trying to explore the value of this imaginative writing--academically and otherwise--as well as its current role in English classrooms around the country. I'm wondering if and how the Common Core Standards are influencing this kind of writing.

I want to know how other teachers view and experience fiction writing within our discipline. Please help me by taking this brief survey... (your name is optional.) I hope you will the questions interesting and that it will take only about 5 minutes! Feel free to also comment or ask questions here.

Yoga Mats, actually. :)

My apologies for posting on this particular topic, but the article I found from you was from 2012, and I couldn't find an e-mail address for you. I am wondering what you decided on for your yoga mats. I'm looking to purchase some for my PE class (and would love to do an elective-type class as well!), but I feel that the ones from my typical PE supply stores are not going to cut it. I also think about using them for general stretching and push ups. Wondering what you found worked best! If you don't mind e-mailing me at, that would be great! Look forward to hearing back from you.

The username and password of

The username and password of the wireless router are usually stated on the package or at the top or bottom of the router. These logon details are exactly the same for most routers from that manufacturer. In case you don't have the guide or there's no sticker beneath the router you can try searching for them online. This is going to take you to the default password and username for ip address and allow you gain complete access to the router.
