Mr. Chamberlain has taken an active role in his students' education. Rather than sit idly by, lecturing and doling out worksheets, he has elected to make his class an interactive experience, as evidenced in his May 12 blog, and his class blog site.
In his May 12 blog, Mr. Chamberlain explains that through his collaborations with other educators, his teaching style has evolved to better suit the needs of his students. His brief interviews with his students reveal the options students are given when working on projects, and how the students themselves perceive the benefits of such choices. It was quite eye-opening.
In his class blog, Mr. Chamberlain serves both students and educators alike. Blogs regarding student projects are posted, educational links are provided, and video presentations are prevalent. There are blogs for his students, and blogs for educators visiting the site. However, what I liked best about the site was the video presentations. They are wonderful sources of ideas for teaching activities (for teachers), and wonderful sources of ideas on "how to" (for students). Mr. Chamberlain's class blog has something for everyone; students and educators alike.
