Traci Gardner

I am an educator, currently teaching in the Department of English at Virginia Tech. I blog about college writing for Bedford/St. Martin's Bits Blog and in the Ink’d In newsletter and write about K–12 English language arts instruction for ReadWriteThink. My Lists of Ten (the source of my nickname, tengrrl) were originally published on email discussion lists, including WPA-L and TechRhet. My work focuses on connected learning, digital composing, and online teaching. I use this domain for my course websites. For my research and writing, please visit my personal site, tengrrl.com.
