I am joining Trina Haase at Trinarrative for a daily haiku challenge this month.

I usually write several reflective learning posts about NCTE, but this has been an especially busy semester, and I haven’t had much time for rereading notebooks and sharing my learning since I’ve been back. But for today’s haiku, I’ve taken a few of my favorite quotations from the conference and turned them into haiku. Words have been cut and rearranged, but no words have been added.

I like to look at people
and listen to them.
Discover new things
–Kate DiCamillo
(Quoted by Olivia Van Lidtje)

 

No great learning comes
from be quiet and sit still.
Grow from discomfort
–Cornelius Minor

 

Weaponize research:
destroy oppressive systems
to keep children safe.
–Cornelius Minor

 

Think of the questions
you can’t answer easily.
Read who gives you voice
–Naomi Shihab Nye

 

sometimes it’s ok
for black people to be
uninterrupted
–Jason Reynolds

most life-giving part
of being a writer:
when you surprise yourself
–Amy Ludwig VanDerWater
