Here are some of the education-related projects I’ve been involved with over the years. You can also find teaching resources and read articles about issues in education.
These are some of the most interesting things I have been involved with: a multimedia studio, an English Corner and a creative Writing website. Click on the thumbnail images to view the pages.
Creative Writing & Literature
I am now in the process of uploading online versions of notes on creative writing. The poetry section is nearly complete. You can find materials on techniques (rhyme, rhythm, figurative language, word choice, poetic devices related to sound), forms (diamond poems, sense poems, haiku, limericks, sonnets and free verse) and interpretations of several poems.
