School Site of the Month(23)

Nathan Toft's Grade 5NT classroom site at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville, Ontario includes a student blog, newsletters, curricular resources, and a gallery of student work, all designed to keep parents and students at the Canadian school well informed. Two features set this site apart. First, students submit their writing assignments online using a Hand In link. Second, several adults, including student teachers and Toft's colleagues on and off site, contribute links and blog posts to the site; it's a great model for real-world applications of online communication.
