Research practicing teachers' websites for ideas and strategies on classroom arrangement, structure, activities, and organization. Choose four favorites and create a blog entry, commending the virtues of the chosen sites. Include the following as part of your blog:
1. List the specific examples you have located and justify why they are outstanding examples of supportive learning environments for young learners.
2. List the website addresses. If the teacher provides an email, you may want to write a short thank you and acknowledgement for sharing their ideas so freely. This is not required as part of the assignment, but preferred in order to recognize the work of others in the field.
3. Review at least two other student blogs and discuss amongst yourselves, within the blog, the merits of the websites or why you may not agree that the chosen site is a good example.
4. In addition to the blog entry, create a chart, table, or matrix that presents your detailed analysis of the websites.
GCU format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
