Sorry I'm so behind in posting. My first month this semester has been pretty hectic. I don't have a computer lab or a smart classroom, and when I request equipment I have a 50/50 chance of it showing up.
I've finally got all of my students working on google docs, next week, we will be setting up blogs for them. Students are currently working on Helen of Troy and writing comparisons on a selection of poetry about her.
It's slow going.
