Hi! I just came across your blog as an exemplar on edublogs. Are you using EduPro (or whatever the paid version of edublogs is) or are you using the free one? I can’t figure out if I have to pay in order to set up my class on edublogs.
Your blog is great! I loved your letter to your past self. 🙂
Hi, Ms. Main! I can’t believe I missed your comment so long ago! Sorry for the slow response.
I do use the EduPro account. I believe it is a reasonable charge for the features it gives me to use personally and with my students. I am not an expert, but I do believe you have to have a Pro account to set up class blogs.
Hello Mrs. McNally,
I am a high school ELA teacher and have been researching using blogs in my classes. I came across yours and have enjoyed pursuing and gathering ideas. I would like to write something similar to your “Student Blog Guidelines.” May I use your list of guidelines and tweak to fit my classes?
Excited to begin this journey-any advice is greatly appreciated!
Of course! Good luck! I think you will love using blogs in your classes.
Good afternoon, Mrs. McNally–
I’ll add myself as another teacher who saw your blog as one of EduBlog’s examples; you and your students have done so many really cool things with it. May I borrow and adjust your blog & comment guidelines for use with my ninth graders this year? This is our first year with blogs, and I’m alternately so excited and a little nervous about trying something brand new.
Of course! Good Luck and have fun!
Thank you! It will be a grand experiment 🙂
I’m excited to be teaching the book thief to my 12th grade students. Would you be willing to share your lesson plans or favorite activities?
