There are some pretty analytical and creative people who fill the desks and seats of #smoreenglish. Here you’ll see a list of student blogs per class. Students routinely write responses to an article of the week and respond on their blog to a provided guided question. They generally are also told a specific skill or set of standards I’ll be using to score their work (I use a proficiency scale do to this.). Along the way, students submit a variety of pieces in which they analyze meanings of complex nonfiction and fiction, apply profound thoughts to improve the world around them, and tell stories that captivate, stir curiosity, and compel readers to action.
