Every year, Sue Waters at Edublogs does a “Educational Use of Blogs Survey” and provides a very helpful report on its results (you can see last year’s report here).

She just began requesting educators to complete this year’s survey, and you can access it here. It’s very short.

Congratulations To Edublogs – They’re Ten Years Old!

edublogs11

Congratulations to Edublogs, the wonderful platform that hosts this blog, and a zillion other ones. This month is their tenth anniversary (and they’re giving away a lot of free stuff)!

They also unveiled a new website design today, which looks great!

I still can’t imagine why any educator would choose a different place to host a blog — Edublogs is simple to use, free or very low-cost to use, and offers great customer service.

My U.S. History Class Blog Has Now Been (Almost) Completely Updated

ushistoryblog

I’ve spent this weekend, and the entire school year, updating my various class blogs. So far, I’ve shared about my ones for World History and for IB Theory of Knowledge.

I’ve now almost completed updated my U.S. History Class Blog for English Language Learners. It follows the chapter sequence found in Steck-Vaughn’s “America’s Story” textbook, but certainly the sequence would be useful for any U.S. History class.

I still have to add a post or two covering events from the last few years but, other than that, I think it’s fairly complete.

You’ll also find a lot of student-handouts that you can download, particularly in the first two-thirds of the chapters. Feel free to use them in your own classes, but please don’t distribute them commercially.
