March is for daily slicing, and all are welcome! Join us at Two Writing Teachers!
"March 4 is a perfect day for really good PD," I said to my friend N.
The two of us were sitting in a coffee shop catching up on life since I hadn't seen her in almost a year. She was telling me about the workshop she was planning for today, March 4.
N. was looking at me like I was a little crazy, but I'm used to that. She had definitely never considered the dual meaning of this day on the calendar.
"It's the only day of the year that's a command," I explained. "But it's like a positive command-- sort of take action-- go do something."
Still confusion from across the table.
I stood up. "March forth," I said, and I began marching in place.
N. started to laugh. "I didn't get it at all," she said. "I love that."
I love this date also. It's a day to point out some frequently confused words to students, and it's also a day to go out and do something I've been meaning to do.
