Yes, this format and classroom structure is suitable to my learning style. This format is more understanding and can benefit people who don't take notes from the board!
Drawback- students can lose the papers.

I will publish the articles on the blog also to avoid the possibility of lost papers. Sorry for not being there the first day. I had to see my son off to his first day of Kindergarten.

I think that this format and classroom structure is suitable for the learning style because you learn from what your peers has to say, and you can understand the topics from your classmates piont of views. The benefits are that you learn in a more modern and fun way, instead of coping notes, which is really tiring and boring. The only set back I see about this format is that not everyone would be able to use the computer daily.

Most seniors use the computer daily.... If they do not... All colleges expect them too. Our school provides numerous access points to the internet.... I honestly do not foresee computer access to be a problem.

I BELIEVE THAT THE INTERNET HAS BEEN A SUCCESSFUL INSTRUMENT TO GET HALF OF THE WORK THAT TEACHERS ASSIGN. I ALSO AGREE WITH TOBIN THAT MATURE TEENAGERS USE THE INTERNET FOR FUTURE REFERENCE SUCH AS COLLEGE AND JOB APPLICATIONS.

I think that this format and classroom structure is suitable for the learning style because You get to hear everybody's opinion on a topic and from there you can form your own conclusion. This style of learning includes a lot of speaking amongst groups which is beneficial because being social is key. Only drawback I see is lack of organization on the stundents part as these papers keep coming in.

I think that this format will be useful for me. I agree with Tobin and Courtney that the internet is part of our daily lives, and should be a part of the class room. It will also be helpful to us next year in college, when most of our communication and assignments from the teacher will be over the internet. I also think reading articles about what is going on in the world today, will keep us informed and help us relate to what we are learning in class.

This is a step in the right direction for our future. Technology is everywhere and students need to utilize it everywhere they go. The best part about this format is the peer discussion. It gives us a chance to hold intelligent discussions outside of the classroom.

Yes i think that this format and classroom structure is suitable forr my learning style because. Its a diferent learning technique than just giving us questions and then we somehow lose our homework were as on this website you can check and see if we did our homework. the benefits this format presents to this classrom is its a fun way to learn witout taking notes and if we lost our articles we can always look on the website and read it again. the drawbacks that i see is that everytone may have an excuse of why they couldnt use the computer. -Octavia Ramos

I agree with Tobin, Courteney, and Vickie, because well all use the internet daily to do a lot of things like homework, email, chatting, and a lot of other things. Also in the article is says that children start there chatting at the “club penguin” and that is true because many of my younger cousin go on that site! And yes we are going to be using the computer for college and it saves us a trip to the store to get a job application.

I agree with everyone who has commented before me. I think this teaching in this format helps to give us a head start of what college will be like, and its a more interactive class with discussions in the class and using technology. ((Manpreet Kaur)
