We didn't have time to talk about it thoroughly today since students were testing. I just mentioned that our writing assignments will be completed in a blog. I sent them instructions for how to log on in their school email.
Their first assignment is to blog just one post in the next two weeks. I left the topic wide open. For some that will be a problem. For others it will be a goldmine!
One student has already published his first blog ... a nicely written description of how a, h, and k affect the transformations of parent functions.
We are using KidBlog ... because it is easy to set up and fairly intuitive. I look forward to writing more about our blogging adventures soon!
