Today, we spent a great deal of time getting our new student blogs all set up and in good working order. With any luck, we should be able to keep and maintain these blogs for the next two years of your high school education. This will be a great way to see your growth and progress as we move through units of study and as you gain skill in reading and writing.
Here is a link to a student blog post that summarizes the student's learning from Ghetto Life 101.
Here is a link to a student poem in the style and format of Tupac Shakur's "The Rose that Grew From Concrete".
Here's another student poem that I liked, though the blog post format needs some work.
We'll be using these blogs more and more as we got through the year. We'll work to update your blogs regularly and to work on their appearance and the gadgets you need to keep a blog. All in good time!
