Article written by Dr. Rozlyn Linder

This is the official blog of Dr. Roz Linder, an academic, K-12 Language Arts Specialist, former elementary school teacher, high school journalism teacher, and all-around rabble rouser. I am interested in how we equip students to compete in a global community that grows increasingly flatter every millisecond and the practical application of communication pedagogy and Common Core standards.Situated at the intersection of cultural, racial, social, and digital literacy, my blog is all about fostering and supporting the recognition that we don’t teach in your grandad’s America and being happy about that. Let's stop telling students what to think or believe, but prepare students to think critically and often.

    It is always a breath of fresh air to see smart, educated, people of color pushing for real change in education. Thank you for giving some of the students in class, especially the girls, a role model, and great lessons.

    In the midst of all the district changes; I am pushing for savvy use of technology in my room, certainly, and my school, hopefully. Many teachers are interested, but you know. What are some suggestions you can give me to get more people on board? I am using a tablet, the kids, their new chromebooks. I want to include your blog. Googleclassroom or mybigcampus and maybe a website. Thank you for your time.

    Hello Dr. Rozlyn Linder,
    I have taught in Korea for 12 years and last year, I started teaching in US. Everything was new and different from Korean education. I spent a lot of time studying and planning to teach well. Your book is so great. It helped me plan better and convey knowledge better. I really appreciate your effort.
    Thank you so much,
