Amen! Authentic Audience

Why blog with students?  I can't think of a better way to say this:

"This teacher's seemingly simple decision to blog about his class and publish their voices for the world to hear is one of the best reasons I know to connect your classroom and students to social media.  Something transformational happens when students (and teachers!) write, create and share for an authentic audience.  In this instance, the young artists of PS22 are not the only benefactors; it seems that adults are profoundly moved by their voices and the hope that this new generation represents.  It is simply amazing what kids can do.  Connect them to a real audience and help them find a 'real' voice."
