Off we go...
Lazy Sunday afternoons have returned with meaning. The first week of school ended as quickly as it came, and now I start the second week. The first week is swallowed up with viewing the syllabus, explaining new and old policies, and getting to know students.
The second week is when the instruction begins. At the moment, I am still working through the red-tape in order to have blogger reinstated in my curriculum. The district believes that what students write today may affect them later. True. But I see blogging in the classroom about literature as an effective way to teach them how to write for a public audience.
If you haven't seen this article on blogging in the classroom, take the time to read through it.
