Summer Anchor Program Teacher Work Day

Today we had a great day of planning and getting ready to begin the MAST Summer Anchor Program. The whole staff participated and created their own individual weblog through We each also created a Bloglines account to "catch" the students' postings. Tomorrow one of the first activities we will do is work with each of the students as they follow the same process to create blogs for themselves. The purpose of the student blogs is to collect artifacts of and record reflections on their learning throughout the summer. It is the first step in the development of our MAST ePortfolio, wherein students collect samples of and document their growth and learning over the course of their career at MAST.
