Today many of my pals on twitter posted tweets to encourage me with this blog. I am grateful to Elisa Carlson, Alyssa Becker, Robert Dewinetz, Heidi Hass Gable and Brad Baumann who all sent their encouragement. They suggested that I am setting a good example by writing these posts. In the end, I hope that teachers would want to encourage students to start blogs too. What a great way to promote student learning and to give student’s new ways to express themselves in writing. Encouraging students to write to a wider audience and helping them build their own style and sense of themselves is a good thing.
Once again I appreciate the support as we embark on new learning.
