Blogs in the math classroom?

Blogs are public writing. We want our students to publish their work — to take ownership of it, to take personal responsibility for it, to take pride in it. These goals apply not only to English class but also in less obvious contexts, such as math. Check out Writing in the Mathematics Classroom within the Future of Math website. Other than being a reader, I have no connection with this site, which is aimed at elementary and middle schools more than high schools but clearly has a lot of helpful ideas and links for high-school math teachers. If you suspect that blogs might be a useful tool in the classroom, visit this site.
