it was worth the wait because that was most excellent!
The post they're talking about really is excellent. And from reading the comments it seems two of them are having a nightly race to see who can be the first one to leave the day's scribe a positive comment!
The scribe posts are really outstanding! The only instruction I gave them was to summarize what happened in class on the day you are scribe and blog it. A future post will talk about the impact of having a scribe in every class blog each day .... metacognition, reflection, impact on students, impact on teacher and teaching, many other benefits. This is all my student's work, I've had very little to do with it. Like Bud says, mine is not the dominant voice, their voices are ... and it's a good thing. ;-)
