An ideal for blog use in the classroom.

I think it would be a great ideal to use blogs in my history classroom. My school has a webpage for every teacher and this semester I think I will use it to summarize material. This will help the kids stay on task and allow their parents to get a view into what it is that we are learning about.

It would be neat if I could also have guest bloggers (students) for extra credit. I could allow the students to do a little research or expand on something we are discussing for extra classroom credit. For example, when we talk about westward expansion I could give a student the option of writing a paragraph about a family moving west and post it on the blog. Then the blog could be displayed during class to encourage participation from others and elaborate on information we are already covering.
