Darren Kuropatwa is an educational blogger from Canada. He is a high school math teachers. A link to his blog is on the sidebar. Some of you have visited his blog and looked at his class blogs that he references on the sidebar. The students in his classes have done some amazing things. Darren created the idea of the scribe post. The students have taken that concept and really gone with it over the past few years. The initial assignment is simple and I will share it with you right from a post by Darren:
Write a brief summary of what we learned in class today. Include enough detail so that someone who was away sick, or missed class for any other reason, can catch up on what they missed. Over the course of the semester, the scribe posts will grow into the textbook for the course; written by students for students. Remember that as each of you write your scribe posts. Ask yourself: "Is this good enough for our textbook? Would a graphic or other example(s) help illustrate what we learned?" And remember, you have a global audience, impress them.
Now for more details check out his entire post, Distributed Teaching and Learning. Ms. Ricketson and I think this would be a great challenge for you to undertake. We believe you can do some incredible work and help others and yourself in the process. Take a look and then we'll talk in class.
