cool blog. Just to tell you I am from a Georgia high school. I agree with you
there on the line graph being the hardest to read. I like the pie graph because
it is round and it has pie as a name. Do you know any other graphs?

Next up is Alejandra blogging on a post about Sully.
The Best Comment So Far
"Wow great post. I never knew that there was so much to
learn about Montana. My name is Sully and I am in ninth grade at a local high
school. You look like you can wright and research well. After reading your
post, I actually do want to visit Montana one day."
short paragraph you just read was a comment. This comment was the one I think
was the best comment so far. I chose this comment because I thought that it it
was very nice for her to say that I know how to research. She also told me that
by reading the post "Montana" (you can read it on Alejandra's blog
under Mr.Harris' class) she decided to go visit Montana. That makes me feel
like if she really paid attention to the post, and made me feel that taking my
time was worth it.

about Paige on this post:
''Hi Desiree!! My
name is Paige. I am a student at a near by Georgia high school. I love your I
AM peom. I noticed that you mentioned Indians a lot. You know, there was a very
big tribe that lived in Georgia many years ago called the Cherokee. What do you
know about them? Have you visited any of the historical sites? Your doing a
good job so far. Keep it up! P.S I like the pink font'' This is a comment that
a student commented to me. I loved it.They know what she was talking about. I
can tell she really read my blog. She was nice and didn`t put any ( not good in
school ) words. She also gave me a good question. I can tell she was a high
schooler! When I saw this comment I knew she was a good blogger... maybe I will
look on her blog too.
On Jennifer's Thinking Blog she thinks it's
cool to get this post from Kristen.
A Post From Kristen
'' Hi Jennifer
Hi my name Kristen. I am from a high school in the Atlanta area. Is your
hobby karate? My favorite hobby begins with a d. What are you learning about in
school?" This a comment from Kristen. I really like this post because it is
from a hischooler. Don't you think that was cool to get a post from a
hischooler? I think is was cool to get a post from an older person who you
don't get to see all the time. I really like this post.
Gian chimes in on a favorite comment from
Laura on this post:
My Favorite Comment
is the best part of blogging! Comments make you feel special inside. This is
one of my favorite comments I received:
Gian! I'm Laura, and I'm from a near by high school.
You're poem is really good. In one of my classes earlier in the year we had to
write an "I Am" poem, and we had to write the poem as if we were a
character from the story we read!
From the looks of you're poem it seems like you like to read fantasy books!
you like to write poetry?"
reason I liked this comment was it made me feel positive instead of
negative. It also shows that I made great blog.
Laura gets another thank-you on this post from another Laura!
The Best Comment That I Recived
I would thank Laura
because she is the best comment that I recived. I like
her comment because she likes the things
that I like.
to all of you for making comments. It is fun to see what the elementary
students are thinking. What a difference you made with comments! Are you
beginning to see the value of comments?
I believe in the power of a free exchange of ideas. I also recognize that words or access to some information can be of harm to others, intentionally or unintentionally. As a commenter, I therefore aspire to participate responsibly in the great online conversation by:
treating all bloggers with respect.
seeking first to understand what is being said.
celebrating another's accomplishments.
• using school appropriate language.
rephrasing ideas in the blog that made me think, made me feel, or helped me learn to let the blogger know his/her voice has been heard.
commenting specifically and positively, without criticism. If I disagree, I will comment appropriately, politely stating my perspective.
being mindful always that I may be a role model to my audience, especially if they are younger than I.
• making no reference to, link to, and/or giving access to any information that may be inappropriate for a school setting.
asking at least one question in my comment with the hopes of continuing a conversation and deepening thinking.
using a triple check before submitting any comment: Would I be happy to have my mother read this comment? My grandmother? My favorite teacher?
The above was written by Lani Ritter Hall who cares about students and teachers and is a frequent commenter on many of my student blogs. She is a National Board Certified Teacher. Lani is a retired school teacher who currently contracts as an instructional designer for online
professional development for Ohio teachers and online student courses
with eTech Ohio. She is a busy lady and makes a difference in a lot of peoples' lives.
We'll talk about this in class! Be thinking about her words.....
