For years I’ve been reading various websites and blogs around the internet. Some of these I have become a regular reader of, some I came back to for a period of time before moving on, and some only received my attention briefly.
About 10 years ago, while attending an educational technology conference, I listened to a speaker espousing the virtues of blogging for educators. This was early in the Web 2.0 revolution and it seemed that everyone at the conference was pushing the idea that educators needed to be creators when it came to the internet. As I sat and listened to all of this advice, I wondered what, if anything, I had to offer that others might find worthwhile. It was this trepidation that held me back. After years of considering blogging, I finally decided to take the leap.
Adventures in History Class represents my effort to impart my thoughts, ideas, experiences, lessons, resources, and general ramblings upon those of you who may stumble upon this site. I will make an effort to regularly post regarding lesson ideas, resources, and general classroom experiences. Hopefully this will be a learning experience for me as well as for any readers that may come across Adventures in History Class.
