A little shameless bragging and ruthless plugging:
It’s time to get resaturated, Pratt and I worked on his blog, Saturatedpratt and updated it to run WordPress. Hopefully he’ll find it easier to post, making more frequent musing more available. He’s already went through and entered all of his posts dating back to the year 2000… an innocent and darling time for the interweb. Take a gander, harass him to post semi-frequently, rather than semi-annually.
In my vain attempt to do different things within my classroom, I’ve decided that I will be maing a website where students will be posting some of their work. From there, it can be commented on, reviewed, and so on… that way it doesn’t neccesarily have to be the usually turn in and hand back format. With the website, it would be WordPress based, such as Box of Whine, but with the school site I would remain the administrator of the sight while all of the students would have a contributor’s log on…meaning I would review everything before it was posted. Overall, it’s bringing in technology and blogging into the classroom to make it a different experience.
So here’s what I need help with from you, loyal readers. I have one idea for the name, but Jess has informed me that it’s pretty lame (wellsdotcom.com)–since my ideas are supposedly flat and lifeless, do y’all have some suggestions? Parameters: It’s school appropriate, no allusions, hints, winks, nods, or gestures to sex, drugs, alcohol, violence, tardiness or cheating. It has to have some realtion to my name, the high school (Cottage Grove), Language Arts, or my room number (108)… or some combination of those.
Let me know you’ve got… thanks.
