Where Is All The Student Work?

When students regularly publish their work to the internet, parents see exactly what children are learning and how they demonstrate mastery.

Make student publishing a regular practice in the classroom. Then parents regularly see student work rather than glimpse it only at parent-teacher conferences. Plus, students share their work with the work and get feedback from beyond the walls of their classroom.

Also Tom you should try to get input from Christine Boyer who is having her students write blogs-and they are fifth graders... I'll nudge her too!

Lisa Yokana That sounds great. What do you think, @Christine Boyer?

And this work sharing can be the precursor for a meeting , where the Ss cab share  their learning and teachers can talk about next steps and everyone plans together. COOL! How would you start this for different ages?

I suggest middle and high students have a blog they publish to for each class. There are probably good platforms for this in elementary but that's not my area of expertise.
