Your students will love writing a retrospective blog from childhood to the present. For my students, it was one of the most engaging, popular and well received writing assignments we completed all year. Even your most reluctant learners have a story to tell. Great for an end of the year assignment or for soon-to-be seniors. Record their memories before they forget them. Parents loved this assignment, too! Don't forget to blog along with your students. Contact me if you would like an MS Word version to adapt it to your class.
Key words: End of the year, engaging, blogging, virtual learning, collaborative
