Marc was scribe today. I didn't think it possible, but he raised an incredibly high bar up another notch.
In her comments to Jefferson Lani suggested:
Just a thought: I wondered about a Scribing Hall of Fame to which everyone could aspire. It seems to me that you, Janet and Michael should be the initial inductees. You have set such high standards!! Maybe the members of the Hall of Fame could even have mention of their membership in their profile image.
I think this is a great idea. So I built a wiki. The Scribe Post Hall Of Fame. (password: iscribe) The wiki has information to help you orchestrate student scribes in your classes. If you already have student scribes in your classes please populate the wiki with their best work. Then we can all use the space to:
- »encourage other students to excel
- »recognize outstanding work done by students
- »build students self-esteem by using this forum to generate widespread public recognition
- »grow the scribe idea and Hall of Fame in any constructive way you can think of
Lani also suggests there should be some way to mention student's membership in the hall of fame on their profiles. This made me think of a badge. We could brand the wiki with a large one and each student's post entered in the hall of fame could have a smaller version pasted into their winning post. A simple but elegant graphic, in conjunction with the wiki, can achieve all the goals outlined above. I'm not much of an artist. How about you? Then again, maybe we should have a student graphic design competition ... hmm ... I'm going to suggest it to the graphic arts teacher at my school. If you do the same in yours we might really get something going here. What do you think?
