How quickly a week passes…yearbooks got here on Thursday, and they look GREAT! I am so proud of my kids, and I’m already looking forward to seeing what we can do next year. Meetings with the new group tomorrow and Thursday, then we give them out on Friday and Monday. Finals start next week, graduation two weeks from tomorrow. We’re pretty much done.
Things seem kind of slow all over. Summer has a way of doing that.
Pat has a pretty good list of potential uses for weblogs here. Am I ever going to get my act together on this? My schedule for next year has J1 classes during Qs 1, 3 and 4. (Newsblogs, here we come.) And I still wonder about ways to run weblogs with classes that aren’t in computer labs. It just seems so much easier for kids to buy into the idea when they have easy access. I know that if I did it with my Mod Am and Media kids, if I assigned it, that they would get into it. Just didn’t have the time or org to do it this Q. But what a cool idea to ask my Lit kids to carry on conversations about the text online for others to see. Or about outside reading. The ideas are easy, as always. It’s the implementation that’s the tough part.
