Thoughts on July 10, 2007
Today was our second day of class. I am feeling quite challenged by learning to "blog" and "furl." I am definitely out of my comfort zone, but I think it is good for me to experience this feeling. It reminds me how my students must feel when they struggle to understand the concepts I am presenting to them. I appreciate our professor's patience and understanding a great deal! I was excited to read so many interesting articles on the web today. I am glad we learned to "furl" these, as I usually have trouble remembering where to find good stuff. Furling seems like a good way of organizing electronic material. One of the most useful websites I found was a great resource on grammar and composition, where my students can go for additional information on a specific topic such as run-on sentences or outlining. One of my goals for this summer was to make better use of my blackboard courses, and one way I think I will do this is by adding links to my blackboard pages for my students' use.
