After reading more than 5 blogs, they seem to be causal or opinions on a variety of areas in education. I found that people can go into random areas that seem more like a one-off idea in the classroom. I find some comments are very long and detailed whereas others are one or two lines. I’m still working on commenting. Sometimes I feel the comments were just validating the author of the blog. I guess that’s valuable too.
I did like the blog on power points. My students have recently given the most boring ppts by doing all the things that were listed as deadly. I plan to share the ideas from power point reform. Also, as an English teacher I couldn’t see a way to not assign homework like the math teacher’s blog. My homework is reading with guiding questions because we really don’t have tome to do all the reading in the class. Overall, I spent a lot of time reading the blogs and the comments, but not sure how much I really gained.
Since I also teach 11 and 12 grades, I was interested in a post about SAT word.
