Now I know that people will actually READ it, specific people, and not just my beloved random readers, do I have to be interesting? NOPE! It is my blog. As a teacher having my students blog, I may have to ease up on the restrictions just a tiny smidgen. A few years ago I tried an editing day once a month with my seventh-graders, where we went back over our blogs and one other blog and made corrections or suggestions for corrections. This was a great idea that I had forgotten about. I will suggest this to the teachers I will be training this year.
UPDATE: If I had actually read the assignment, I would have known that I was supposed to post a relevant link and picture per post. I apologize if I forgot to put the appropriate caption under to picture to bring attention to the relevance. I am actually excited that we get to blog for this class inspite of my earlier questions. It may the one area in which I get a decent grade if i read the instructions carefully. The link I will share today will be to an article I wrote about blogging in the middle school classroom. Since I saw so many new blogs this week, I just thought I would share my experiences. I would also like to share an amazing blog by Ben, a student. He has links to other amazing blogs, also by students. You can see the types of projects that are post-able to blogs.
