Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood : 7th Grade Humanities

International Blog Collaboration?  
Writing and Publishing on blogs empowers the writing process!

This is James Robinson's class blog. It also hosts blogs from all of his kids.  James teaches literature, humanities and writing at SAS (Shanghai American School).  He's been blogging for about a year and a half.  As you'll see if you visit this great example of classroom blog use. This blog rocks!

James is using Wordpress to create a website/blog presentation.  He's happy to have teachers or students drop in and respond to the personal blogs his students have created. 

If you're looking for a chance at an international student exchange blog connection, give it a look. (Heck, give it a look if you're just curious.)   

James is currently taking my 6-traits online class.  I can tell his classes are great places to learn. So is his blog!

The kids love to get comments on their blogs from folks around the world so don't forget to be interactive!
