- Free Tech for Teachers offers information about a blogging service you can use with your students in this post.
- Check out this Edublogger blog post about using iPads to blog. I’ve seen more and more educators talking about getting iPads in their schools, so I thought this would be useful to share.
The test quizzed students on such topics as colonization, the American Revolution, the Civil War and the contemporary United States. For example, one question asks fourth-graders why it was important for the United States to build canals in the 1800s.
What I tell my students all the time: history is important! Unfortunately, sometimes it is overlooked.
Today was the last day of school. I received this email when I got home:
Hey Ms.D! Just wanted to let you know that I will miss you as one of my favorite teachers in (high school). I liked your personality and you always made us laugh and made the class fun. Im probably not going to like history next year because you won’t be teaching lol Wish I could have you as my favorite history teacher next year, but oh well. Anyway, have a great summer!
Unrelated, but: I know I have not been as active with posting lately. I started my summer job and grad school as well. Now that school is over, I hope to be posting more. Sorry for my recent absence!
Who I am: A fourth year high school history teacher at an urban(ish) high school in New Jersey.
What I blog about: Stuff related to education I like, and stuff I hope can help other teachers out. Technology, deals on supplies, helpful books. My focus lately is on educational technology & related resources. Occasionally, I also post things related to education reform. Because I post articles that I feel will be of interest to teachers with varying views, the political-related posts made here do not necessarily reflect my beliefs or opinions, nor do they reflect the beliefs of my employer.
What I like learning & reading about: Other teacher's opinions about and experiences with teaching & education. How I can enrich my classroom and reach out to my students. If you write about this stuff, let me know, because I probably want to read it.
What you should submit: Anything that could help a teacher.
