This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and edtech enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt.
Oral histories are how society passes on cultural beliefs and experiences. In the modern day, blogging has become a surrogate for those histories.
Stories interpret our experiences and help others learn about the worlds around them. They help us connect on an emotional level and create empathy.
Beginning a blog post with a story has also shown to be one of the best ways to engage a reader and build an audience.
Prompt: Write a post that tells a story.
Tell a story about a time in your career as an educator that you want to share. It can be a positive memory, a time you wish you could change the outcome, a student you remember, or just a class lesson you want to share.

I’ve been reading beautiful posts about prompt 26, but then I realized I had written just a story about reading and writing…
Thanks, Ines. I’m looking forward to checking this one out!
Still plugging away! I WILL catch up one of these days 😛
You’re a champion blogger. Time is irrelevant. It’s fantastic you’re getting through this topics. Your writing is always so interesting. I enjoyed your story and left a comment.
My story links my learning to David Thornburgs, primordial metaphors of cave, campfire, waterhole and life.
Two short stories, almost 50 years apart. “What’s my teacher doing here?”
I agree it is very much so a story. 😉
Not much of a story, but a little reflection on education.
I’ve shared this story before, but perhaps you’ve not heard about “Books With Legs.” If not, then be sure to learn about them on this week’s blog post:
I missed 2 weeks of blogging, but I am back!
Happy Saturday All!
I’ve fallen a bit behind but offer thoughts for this week’s prompt: http://www.catherinefinger.com/blog/restoration-a-story-i-want-to-tell/
Thank you for interacting with me as we continue this blog-journey together!
Several weeks behind so working to catch up. Here is prompt #16: http://aschaefersalinas.blogspot.com/2017/04/tell-me-story.html. Thanks Karen for providing me an opportunity to recall this great story from just a few weeks ago…
Well, I’ve yet to catch up on the previous prompts, but I do have a bunch of drafts in the works. I guess that’s progress. This week’s post is a personal story about a family member, the need for sleep and high school.
Thanks for sharing – I would have loved a later start in the day for high school!
This story isn’t so much about school – but rather what we learned – a story about a family long weekend, no wifi, no problem. It was written a while ago but still, the happy memory is vivid in our hearts and minds.

Hi Alicia, I loved your story about trust in a so personal and delicate matter as awakening the pleasure of reading in a young person.
