This past week in TO's class we not only discussed Podcasting but also various internet websites that can be beneficial in the classroom as well as fun ideas for us to explore. My and Ryan's topic was to explore Pinterest. We created a board that is called Writing Prompts, this board has quotes and different pictures that we intent to stimulate students writing. This type of assessment keeps the students interested and their options open. They are able to choose any picture and relate it to anything they wish, just as long as they write. Pinterest is a great way for teachers to gather ideas and also spark classroom creativity. I cannot air to see what everyone else was assigned and how they relate it to education!

  1. I like the idea of using Pinterest for writing prompts. I have had Pinterest for awhile now and the educational aspects always seemed to be more geared towards elementary school classrooms rather than high school, and I haven't found that many helpful things for English. I really like your idea you shared here though and can't wait to see your presentation!
