In preparation for my group’s presentation on blogging, I have been looking through blogs made by teachers. On their blogs, teachers compile resources, write about their days in the classroom, talk about issues facing education, and share their insights about teaching and learning. Here are some of the blogs I found most useful.

I am a teacher in an Ontario school and hope to ignite discussion, incite action and inspire change to the way we teach students. Incorporating more technology and driving our programming through a student-centered model will reach our learners and meet their potential effectively.

http://www.funinfourth.ca/p/welcome.html by Angela – BC, Canada
I’m Angela. I teach fourth grade in British Columbia, Canada. I inspire time-strapped teachers to better reach all learners through clear, comprehensive, and hands-on lessons for maximum student engagement. This means that teachers can spend more of their valuable time on other aspects of their lives. My resources help teachers just like you tackle content areas with complete, easy-to-use, low-prep units. Through inquiry-based approaches, hands-on learning experiences, and collaboration, teachers and students can go deeper with the curriculum.
