Finally I’ve started with students and blogging and reactivated the class twitter account. It’s a totally different experience working as a single subject teacher rather than a classroom teacher. Right now I’m trying to lay down the groundwork to bring the idea of blogging into classes.
The students loved it. Instead of reflecting just for themselves and spurring no action. The students had to think about what they as a class learned and then the one student scribe had to think about specifically what she learned. It was wonderful and easy really.
I feel like it’s a good start, just need to keep it up by forming those good habits.
