Blogging with Students

As a history teacher, I am always trying to make the past relevant for my students. I ask them to consider not just facts and dates but the overall big ideas that tie history together. Blogging gives them an opportunity to engage and express their own thoughts on the subject matter. It is a great way for the reserved, quiet student to share their voice. If you haven’t tried blogging with your students, Blogger and Edublog is a good place to start. Even if you don’t have students create their own blogs, a class blog is a wonderful space to share ideas.

Happy Blogging!
