  • One day I looked around at how profoundly my job had changed since I began teaching in 1998, due to technology, and that if I was going to be relevant - I needed to change & help bring my kids into the 21st Century.
  • BUILD COMMUNITY through COMMUNICATION - Blogging has allowed our walls to literally and figuratively disappear as the students work together to inspire, encourage, respect, and validate each other.
    CHARACTER expectations are established and reinforced, but have just infused -
  • Engaged - thinks critically and uses technology to learn, innovate, communicate and
    discover
    Ethical - builds relationships, demonstrates respect, empathy and
    compassion; and who, through teamwork, collaboration and communication,
    contributes fully to the community
    Entrepreneurial
  • ENGAGE = students are the stars - they are “seen” & celebrated (give and receive)
    ETHICAL = Character and Citizenship
    ENTREPRENURIAL =
  • For some crazy reason students feel this way when they are first realize my expectation of blogging - denial! It’s the same reaction I’d get with students in a drama class - “What? You expect us to ACT on a STAGE????”
  • This is an important step in moving their writing from the “messy” draft on the paper, towards a polished piece of writing.
  • In lab time we are working towards more peer-editing feedback prior to posts being “submitted for review” and published on the blog.
  • Students respect the commenting expectations and guidelines that I provide.
    Students inspire each other through exemplars & feedback.
  • Creativity, empowerment and engagement dominate this redefinition for student writers!

    53. 53. A Sample Blog - Grade 10 MY  LITTLE  BOY  by  Rizan   He  was  elated  one  afternoon,  a  gentle  smile  caressing  his  petite  face.  He  handed  me  a  report  card,  so  animated  with  A’s  and  B’s  it   seemed  to  have  an  aura.  I  wasn’t  reluctant  in  giving  him  an  encouraging  gesture,  a  “high-­‐Bive”  to  show  my  content.  A  pride  enveloped   me,  a  revelation,  a  possibility  that  this  insufferable,  indomitable  cloud  following  my  boy  would  soon  disappear  into  the  promise  ahead.   He  ran  upstairs  and  I  began  to  cook  our  dinner.  It  wasn’t  long  before  I  hastily  organized  our  kitchen  table  with  poorly  prepared   porcelain  plates  and  plastic  placemats.  The  cutlery  and  cups  were  put  to  ease  from  my  tight  grasp  soon  after  the  searing  of  my  skin   forced  me  to  drop  the  serving  dish  onto  the  table  vigorously.  I  called  my  son  from  the  kitchen,  trying  to  notify  him  that  supper  was   ready;  no  response.  My  daughter’s  silhouette  came  into  perspective  and  I  addressed  her,  instructing  her  to  call  her  brother.  She  ran   upstairs,  her  hands  colliding  with  the  steps  proceeding  her  feet  in  childish  fashion.  My  fragile  daughter  prolonged  the  wait.  She   restrained  from  responding;  her  words  climbed  up  her  throat  and  clung  to  the  sides  of  her  esophagus  so  she  couldn’t  speak.  I  stormed   the  stairs  of  my  apartment  reaching  the  second  Bloor  and  tracing  the  steps  of  my  10-­‐year-­‐old  daughter;  I  was  appalled. My  timid  little  boy,  a  victim  of  ignorance.  The  martyr  of  malice  corroded  his  spirit  and  ushered  him  into  sinister  solitude.  Enveloped  in   oppression,  my  son  would  come  crying.  With  his  head  to  my  chest,  I  felt  the  tears  dampen  my  sweater.  He  was  scared;  he  struggled  to   keep  his  peace.  He  was  the  scapegoat  of  slurs,  which  cut  deeper  than  the  blade  and  the  threats  punctured  his  self-­‐esteem  leaving  him   amidst  paranoia.  It  wasn’t  inconspicuous  and  I  should’ve  known.  That  day  he  woke  up  without  an  appetite,  rather  fear  in  his  belly;   however,  my  little  boy  packed  his  things  and  strolled  to  school  on  April  16  of  2009.  There  had  been  several  instances  where  I  had  to   confront  the  administration,  their  lack  of  attentiveness  was  my  concern.  I  tried-­‐  oh  so  dearly-­‐  but  it  wasn’t  sufBicient.   My  apartment  door  has  become  a  shrine  and  my  heart  hosts  guilt’s  assault.  What  was  he  to  do?  He  was  lost  and  couldn’t  Bind  himself,   however,  I  did.  Hanging  from  the  ceiling  amidst  his  room’s  closet,  my  son  succumbed  to  the  pressure  of  the  world  as  well  as  the   strangle  of  his  belt.  Should  he?  At  the  tender  age  of  11,  my  little  boy  Jaheem  Herrara  took  his  life  because  he  was  bullied.
