I'm trying to have my students create meaningful blog posts that will aid in learning. My first few weeks bombed. Today I had them look a few interesting blogs on my reader and then return to our blog to comment on them. Hopefully, as we practice it will become seamless. However, for now not all of them have their school email!
most of the posts so far have been amazing, check them out over the next few days and comment on them. I'm trying to let them see how global we really are.
From experience, Commerce City kids don't always get to see the bigger picture and this is really hard for them....to imagine themselves in a bigger community. (Honestly, before I entered high school I didn't know there were music choices outside of rap and hip-hop! We don't really ever leave either: we bought a house next to my in-laws!)
