Create a Powerful Class Blog!

Let me show you how a class blog can revolutionize your parent communication.

Why a Class Blog?

Writing

Teach your students their voices are heard when you share their writing with the world. 

Flip your class

Post video and audio lessons for students to preview at home before coming to class.

INformation

Share detailed information with parents and students. Include links, images and even video. 

Z

Due Dates

No more excuses about not knowing the due date or details. Your class blog can organize every major assignment, unit, or activity happening.

Save Time

Write posts that allow you to share policies and procedures year after year.

Communication

Parents can subscribe to your email list. That means one email to let them know there is something new on the blog. 

Blogs are better than teacher websites!

Do you have a teacher website hosted by your district? Is it really doing all the things you need it to do? A blog will give you the opportunity to easily, and beautifully, organize information. Create pages specific to students for flipping your classroom. Create pages specific to parents so they can be informed and see the learning taking place. 

Blogging is for ALL classrooms!

Blogging is not just an English class kind of thing. If your students are completing projects, post them to the class blog. If your students have a field trip planned, post the details to the class blog. Anything you want parents to know or see can be posted to a class blog.
