This blog is supervised by Peter Pappas with contributions from his social studies methods class ~ ED 456/533E at the University of Portland’s School of Education.

I see many benefits to a class-managed blog – a great chance to learn WordPress, an authentic audience for student writing, a showcase for student work, and a chance to break out of the Moodle silo.
