I read Kathleen Morris's Blog, she is a teacher at Primary Tech. She has filled her blog with tips and tricks for all types of teachers. Wither they be new to the education world or experienced veterans. She mentioned how she once feared that when she started having children and went on maternity leave she would get out of the "education loop." She said that with blogging networks and tools online it has helped her tremendously throughout maturity leave with her new baby! That was comforting to hear!< br />
I read Mrs. Morris's post about how it is crucial to keep the blogging as a focus point in the classroom. When she was a teacher in her classroom, she made sure to have at least 10 to 20 minutes of whole class blogging in order to keep her students on a daily routine of blogging. She also made a point to say that she makes sure the question the students topics they are journaling about are relevant to their daily lives and the about the events happening in the real world.
