More and more teachers at West are joining the blogging and wiki-ing ranks. As part of our Internet Study, several teachers have launched pages for their students and classes — and the numbers are growing every week. Sure, some of them will be left dormant after our study group is finished, but I’m sure others will take on a life of their own and become wonderful resources for students and other teachers.
Probably the most "mature" wiki I have seen so far belongs to Language Arts teacher Amy Tuttle. Mrs. Tuttle has created quite the resource for her students. She’s become quite adept at separating the wheat from the chaff on YouTube. Personally, her Macbeth page is my favorite thanks in no small part to her link to a video of Macbeth and Macduff engaged in a light saber duel. What I like most is that she shows her kids through parody and satire that Shakespearean literature does not always have to be taken so seriously.
