📰 Read Write Respond #059

Cover for November's newsletter of ideas and information associated with all things education, mined and curated for me and shared with you.
Welcome back for another month.

Victoria started to see the other side of lockdown. However, even with all the donut days, it still feels weird to step out and see people be half-hearted about masks and social distancing. Confidence takes time. I think that Tyson Shine captures this best with in reflection on travelling interstate. Having said all that, it was nice to catch up with family and friends again, as well as get my haircut for the first time in six months.

Personally, I continued immersing myself in the worlds of Marcus Yallow and Masha Maximow carved out by Cory Doctorow in his new novel Surface Attack. In addition to this, I enjoyed Katie Miller-Heidke’s new album. In regards to my writing, I reflected on the magic of technology, as well as the new normal beyond the classroom.

Beyond that, here is what had me reading and responding:
