Slice of Life Roundup at High Tech

The entire freshmen class at High Tech is participating in the Slice of Life blogging challenge!  Woohoo!

The challenge is to write daily.  Students are blogging their slices of life, or stories of small moments in their lives, for at least 20 days this month.  They have been challenged to write a new slice and post it every single day between March 1st and March 31st, if they choose to accept that challenge.  While it can be difficult at first, a few students have noted that they have started to enjoy the writing and find themselves looking at their daily lives a little differently.  Many of the freshmen haven't missed a day yet!  They are encouraging one another with comments, too.

A handful of the freshmen have made the decision to "go public" with their blogs for this challenge, rather than continuing to blog on our private class Ning.  You can read some of those blogs by following the links below.  Be sure to leave comments!  Comments are like candy to our writers. :)


  1. I'm delighted your students will be sharing with our online classroom community. It's pretty late right now. Therefore, I'll come back to read some of their writing tomorrow.

    Thanks for sharing, Sarah!

  2. Not sure why it says 8:50 p.m. It's 11:50 p.m. Didn't want you to think I thought 8:50 p.m. was staying up late.
