October!?!

How did we get to October? If we were back home I would mention the changing leaves or the weather changing to get a little cooler (warmer for you southern hemisphere people). But, living in Singapore which is just above the equator we don’t have seasons, we have sunny and hot, and sunny and hot, that is it.

 

Last week in class we began to use Google Docs as a way to write and plan together on one page. We quickly learned that 22 of us using Explorer would crash the system. We had to adjust and retry. Thank you Google Chrome.

What we were doing was creating a set of learning ideas that we would like to share with the world. Each student was writing about what they feel we should share and how the best way to present it would be. This is a step towards the students having their own individual blogs hopefully sometime in the next 2 weeks. One of the examples we have come up with is showing how our writing leads got better through revision and addition of details.

We also have  been doing out best to be readers of blogs so that when we lauch ours we have a pretty solid idea of what we want it to look like and what it should be sharing. We look forward to having those up soon and would appreciate any support and comments you may have.
