This course has been the most beneficial teaching class I have taken yet (I hope there are others in the future that I find as helpful). It exposed me to many helpful resources. I plan on using many of these resources as a teacher. I hope to use many of the different instructional strategies and lessons that I found through this, many of which I had never thought of before. I think my personal favorite site I used for this class was Read, Write, Think. I thought that many of the lessons on that site could be used very effectively in my class. Now that I have been exposed to all these different resources, there is no doubt that I will continue to serach for new ones. I have found out that the search for an exciting and interesting lesson plan is fun, and hope to continue to find useful ones in the future. I don’t plan on continuing this blog, however. As much as I have enjoyed reading and responding to other people’s posts and having other people read and respond to my posts, I know that I (and hopefully others from this class) will continue to research different methods of teaching without having to keep up with this blog. This was the first online class I have taken, and look forward to my next one.
Thank you Ms. Deal and all my classmates for making this such an interesting and fun class.
