Reflection: Student Communication Analyzing Character Traits - Section 2: Creating Character Posters


Many of my students have e-mail addresses.  Not all, of course, but many.  Some students share e-mail address with their parents.  My e-mail address is posted on my school website, and students and parents can also e-mail me directly through our electronic gradebook.

Another way students can contact me is through Edmodo. Edmodo is like Facebook for schools. It even looks similar. I can post assignments, reminders, quizzes, and polls and students can respond. It's a very easy way for students to communicate with me.

You can set it so that you get an e-mail alert when a student comments on anything. I have it set for that so I am aware of what they are posting. While many of my students do have e-mail addresses, it seems that more of them are more comfortable posting on Edmodo.  They also have the opportunity to send a direct post to me or to put it out to the whole class. And if another student responds before me?  Win!
