a grape by mlodenbach :: bookr ::pimpampum

I was just searching around for language arts ideas and found this site. It's easy to use - I just rewrote this poem I had written for a creative writing class I took last year and added photos that were available through the flickr search at the bottom of the page.
I thought I could embed it, but I guess not. Rats. Either that or I'm just not doing something right. It was fun to make, and I think once students had poems written, this would be a nice finishing touch.

A Great Site

I love going to . I have found tons of great resources for all subjects areas. Today I found myself there and am now trying a tool called Reframe It This allows people to look at any website, such as online article, for example, and comment on it. You can highlight a specific section so that others can easily follow your thoughts. Classes could use this tool to discuss and analyze online content. I also think it would also be an interesting tool for teachers to have an on-going discussion. Anyway, I'm hoping that someone I know will sign up and be willing to try this with me.
