Greetings to the class of 2006

IB Seniors -
This summer I participated in the National Writing Project - a wonderful personal and professional development experience that provided me with opportunities to develop my own writing and also to become a better writing instructor. One of our projects was to learn about blogging and I decided that it would be a good way for us to get to know each other and to nurture each other's writing.
One of the activities of the Writing Project is to keep a daily log of the day's events. Each participant took turns keeping a record or log of everything that happened that day. The Logs were informative, but they were also a place to write humorous things that people said and each logger wrote in his or her own voice so that reading the logs the next day was both fun and a good reminder/record of the important things that happened the day before. I would like us to keep a daily log. Each day one of you will keep a record of the important and not so important events of each class period and then write a blog entry that night and have it ready for the class to read the next day. Each writer should feel free to develop his or her own voice through the kinds of things that you record - part serious, part fun. Of course, it's important that the content be appropriate for classroom discussion and that no blogger ever make fun of or humiliate anyone.
Our blog will be restricted so that only members of the class will have access to the blog.
