Balancing writing and reality

How on earth can I do what I’m doing — writing curriculum, educational research, and related writing projects — and find time / ways to stay in touch at a classroom level?  I haven’t figured it out yet. Anyone out there have any thoughts?

    The mere action of writing about teaching and curriculum automatically puts us back into the classroom without the mental and sometimes physical exhaustion of teaching.

    You might be right. Also, I discovered I can go back through files, correspondence, etc. from teaching to reflect on what I did in the classroom, similar to the process of going back over class material to apply what I’ve learned more thoroughly. Often when we’re in school–either teaching or as a masters student–there isn’t time to fully assimilate and process what we want to, and writing may allow me to do that.

    I think the other thing bothering me was the idea of being able to test new curriculum ideas, to try things out.
