Post #2: I really liked this website for teaching history. http://www.historyteachersattic.com/ It was engaging and has great resources.
I found that the process for posting on blogs was a bit frustrating. I often had to register before allowed to post my thoughts. On occasion I couldn't figure out the password because it was so distorted, and so after typing up a response was unable to post it. There are so many blogs out there! I have to really target just a few that I want to follow so as not to get overwhelmed. I did like the idea of being able to connect with teachers elsewhere. I think it's great to hear their ideas.
I think I will be following the edutopia.org website often because it has a variety of blogs relating to any topic I might need.
