Vote of Confidence
My Central Office continues to discuss the curricular merit of bloggin in the classroom. I had hoped to have the issue figured out last week considering I've been using blogs for the previous two years. My students are beginning to wonder whether or not they will ever have the opportunity.
And while the C.O. debates this critical issue, I have heard from two former blogging students. One stopped by the school, she graduated with the class of '05, to say hello. In the discussion I told her of the situation. She said she'd be a witness if needed. The second vote of confidence came via a current student who has a friend from the class of '05. He had told her that the blogging assignment was the best one I had.
Here' hoping that after this week's round of meetings, my Central Office will realize the learning value of regular writing for a public audience.
