Behold- the power of BLOGS!

Earlier this week I finished working with the upper level English classes. They have decided to use BLOGS as a way for the students to complete their SAT vocabulary words. This energetic student teacher set up four blogs (one for each of the four classes) and invited each student to be a member of their class's blog.

On their assigned day, each student must define their word using the format designed by the teacher. The blogs are working very nicely when they need to talk about the mnemonics...They love adding cool graphics.

It is a good idea and the teacher is willing to "muck around" a bit to see if it works! I have great hope- so far they are only on the A's!
