The world’s largest English DepartmentNing Network Spotlight
The English Companion, launched by superstar high school English teacher Jim Burke, is a Ning Network for English teachers to meet and help each other out. This is the place to find inspiring new texts, effective teaching methods, and just to share a common passion for education.
Teacher Magazine just ran a great article on The English Companion, spotlighting the experience of teacher Laura Abercrombie and how Jim Burke, Laura Robb, and other members helped her ease into her educating career. With a rich set of curriculum materials, FAQs, and poetry round tables available, The English Companion is proving to be an invaluable resource for rookie and veteran English teachers alike.
