If you had to teach something, what would you teach? Do you think blogs can play a role in education?
I would LOVE to teach middle school, and I’d LOVE to teach courses that combined English literature with history and drama. I’ve always thought that if you looked at literature with the perspective provided by history, and added in drama, you’d get some amazing classes going. Because you cannot look at literature as something apart from the era in which it was created, combining the subjects could provide a much richer appreciation and enjoyment for all involved.
I absolutely think blogs can play a role in education. If I were a teacher, I’d have my students create blogs as part of the class assignments. That would provide me, as teacher, with a guideline of how the students are assimilating what I’ve tried to teach them without the stress caused by exams.
