Dear Marc

Dear Marc,

I hope you are fine and doing really well with your students. I'm very sorry about "losing" the blog you created last year. We tried to get it back, but, apparently, once you delete an e-mail account, everything else connected to it is lost too.

This year we are all working very hard. We are focusing especially on writing skills. We have a portfolio with all the unit writing tasks and we work the structure of different text types and the different stages of the writing process. I think it's a positive experience, and really useful for the students. I think they are learning a lot and their texts are getting better.

Now it's end of term and we are all very busy, the students preparing for exams and the teachers with a huge pile of files, portfolios and exams to correct. Life's hard!! ;)

Well, I have to leave you now. Do tell us how you're doing.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Mississippi Burning

"Mr Bird: Why did he do it? He wasn't even in on it. Wasn't even Klan.

Mr Ward: Mr Bird, he was guilty. Anyone's guilty who watches this happen and pretends it isn't. No, he was guilty all right. Just as guilty as the fanatics who pulled the trigger. Maybe we all are."

Scene 15

What do you think? Have your say!!
