C4T #4

I chose to work with the U.S. History Teachers Blog, by Ken Halla. It can be found at U.S. History Teachers Blog.
The first blog I commented on in this blog was a actually a video that they had posted about flipping the classroom. The idea of flipping the classroom was explained very well and give examples of how to do it. The video focused on the things students could learn outside of the classroom on their own. It talked about the arrival of the Spaniards in Native American Territory and how disease and things of that sort, which had not been introduced to the Natives wreaked havoc. It was very well written out and preformed in a timely manner that would not allow for the students watching it to become bored.
The second blog I commented on was a blog regarding the use of Primary Documents. I wrote about how I loved the use of primary documents because they provide the most credible details of what exactly happened in this event being discussed. I also feel that primary documents provide vivid details of what is going on which in turn allows the students to create what is going on in their heads, only by the information provided.
