This school year, I have created a classroom blog for my Advisory, Social Studies, and Science classes. I am in hopes it will be the consistent force within our days as we go up against varying schedules of online and in classroom learning. It will provide support information for the assignments that we complete as well as house our expectations, etiquettes, and procedures for the class.
One specific way to use this application is creating a virtual literature circle, creating a place for groups of students to continually and actively discuss the books they are reading. Providing students with the platform to share thoughts and ideas of the literature and gain further insights through the information gathered from their class-mates and teacher. Application assists with both time and differentiation for a better student focused classroom that a teacher can effectively manage.
