I will attempt to use blogs this summer to help my students reflect on their learning. Hopefully if it is successful then I can use it next year for my regular classess.
Journaling is an important part of education, and allowing others to comment on your thoughts can be very exhilirating. It can confirm something that you already believe, or it can cause you to question previously held beliefs. Whatever the case may be, it will allow students to get opinions from someone other than the classroom teacher.
Wish me luck on this summer experiment.
