I am now sponsoring two discussion/message boards. The first one is for my ClassConnections site and it deals with information and issues directly related to my classes at YSU. The second one is related to my work to end Ohio Proficiency Testing and Ohio School Report Cards. It deals with state-wide OPT-OSRC issues, information, networking, and political activity. This second discussion/message board is part of my project to create a WWW clearing house for anyone interested in fighting OPT. I will be giving the URL of the new OPT site here as soon as it is finished. However, the message board is up and running now.
The purpose of the ClassConnections Discusion/Message Board is to help you help each other with issues, topics, and assignments related to your class. The ClassConnections Discussion/Message Board is for all of my students, past and present. This, of course, means that discussions and messages by both undergraduate and graduate students will appear. Likewise, messages may vary across every class I teach and across general topics about teaching and schooling that are not necessarily restricted to an one particular class. I will attempt enter the discussions when needed and when time permits. I sincerely believe that this is the best way to do it... an opportunity to be a virtual community of practitioners and students of teaching/learning.
Be certain to be precise in your Topic Line... give your class and/or your issue. This will make it easier for others to decide which messages they may wish to read.
