To say that the students were thrilled with the GSU students' comments would be an under statement. It took a while, but each student read every single comment and they could not wait to write their reactions. Check out the JHH Reactions (stories) to the GSU Reactions (comments)!
This is such a bright little group. They are thoughtful thinkers and our group discussions are getting better. Now is the time though for us to put our "shoulder's to the wheel" and work on some major editing and producing stronger writing. If all goes well, technology-wise, we will be creating student blogs this week. I'm thinking that I will teach them how to copy from this group blog to their blog, and then we will begin the process of proofing work, peer-editing, and giving more thought to the writing. Their homework was to bring in a short piece on something that had happened in the news. I'm looking forward to seeing them tomorrow!
