APRIL WRITE 2013 – Day 15 – THE THREE R’s

Posted on

Welcome to Day 15 of the April Write 2013: A new era begins

And antipodean greetings once more!

We are almost half way through this year’s April Write and I hope that you, like me, have been enjoying the journey thus far.

The topic for today is “ungulates” … Just kidding!

No, the real topic for today is: “The Three R’s” or: “Reading, writing and arithmetic”.

Please see below for a piece from me on this topic – please feel free to use it as possible inspiration, or use anything else that may pique your interest along these lines.

You may wish to explore education policy in your country; or perhaps the divide between educational attainment of different demographic groups within your neighbourhood, country or further afield. Perhaps exploring the linkage between education and other life outcomes, such as criminality, relative wealth/poverty etc is more your cup of tea. Or the counting of how many leaves of tea are required for a decent cuppa (that’s related to arithmetic, after all…!)…

Best of luck, and I look forward to reading your pieces.

Welcome to Day 7 of the 2012 April Write – the Poets Jubilee Olympiad.

Some of you may have found our Day 6 topic on injustice and racism, hard to write on or it’s taking longer than you thought to complete. You might have chosen not to share what you had penned, or found yourself hard pressed for time.

I understand that you will get too busy sometimes, so you can always catch up on days that you have missed at any time during the month of April.

Your title and topic for Day 7 of the April Write is “READING”

Please watch the video below.

(As you should be doing every day…)

Then come back to the group and share with us why you read or why you might encourage others to do so.
