During the session on blogging from AETC, several people asked about examples of teachers who are using blogs with their students. A quick Google search and a little “surfing” turned up several that I think are worth a look.
- Brandi Caldwell, a teacher at
Mountain Brook High School, composed Mrs. C’s Senior English Blogs. From her last post there, it seems the school system began blocking Blogger, so you will see a link there to another venue she now uses. Here, you see Mrs. Caldwell composing the posts and her students responding with their comments. On Mrs. Myrmel’s Classroom Blog, we see a blog used as a tool for a 3rd grade teacher to communicate with parents. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn At the Room 303 Blog, Mrs. Huff’s students compose the posts. The most recent posts at present relate to student insights into . Other students post comments where they respond to what their classmates have composed. This one is definitely worth a look.
Do you know of other examples that would benefit teachers who are interested in using a blog in their classes? If you do, please leave a comment.

I have a blog for our band program at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School. Our president, who is into blogging himself, links my blog to our school website. In the “news” section, on the front page, my top two posts appear as news items for all to see. Interested persons can click the headline and be directed to my blog. The blog site is catholicband.blogspot.com , and our website is http://www.knights.pvt.k12.al.us .
