Blogging as Critical Thinking

 Every week I receive an electronic update of all of the blog postings of teachers automatically sent to me.  I wanted to share two blogs by two music classes by Stephen Trombley.  I know many of you have been working on curriculum revisions as well as embedding essential questions.  Additionally, we’ve talked about increasing our interdisciplinary opportunities.  Finally, with a continued focus on 21st century learning skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, global awareness, and digital literacy, I ask you to look at the following blog posts through the lens of all of these best practices.  These offer great examples.
