LBC Posted June 30, 2009 Share Posted June 30, 2009 (edited) I have very little experience with blogs, but I'd like to learn, and teach my dc. First a little background: We're in BC, Canada. Our grad program includes credits for grades 10 - 12. SS is covered as follows: Social Studies 10: Canada - 1815 - 1914 Social Studies 11: Canada & the World/Global Village/government/geography - 1914 - current History 12: 20th Century World History We're on Modern History in our history rotation. My tentative plan is to cover the topics of all three years this coming school year. To get credit for each course, dd would need to present a "final project". I was thinking that she could set up a blog, and present her final project for each year on the blog. What I need to know from those who are expert bloggers: What sort of applications can I do with a blog? Timeline: I'm thinking that I can create a timeline template by using a vertical table along the left, and dd can fill in the events as we cover them. Is there a better way to set up a timeline on a blog? Maps: Can I have her scan the maps she makes and put them on the blog? Essays: Can dd copy and paste her Word documents into the blog without messing up the formatting? I like the idea of a blog, and I think dd would work much harder on something that might be read by more people. I'd love more ideas of what can be done, if you have suggestions. I'd also love to see what other students have done, if you have any links. Thanks! Lori ETA: I'm going to cross post on highschool board.
