News for Today’s Tweens via Tween Tribune

It’s no wonder this has been one of my most popular original posts!
In February of 2011, one of my first blog posts was about Tween Tribune.  You can read that post by clicking here.  Because of the popularity surrounding this post, I only thought it would be fair to reintroduce it to potential new readers of my blog.  
Last year, as a middle school teacher, we used Tween Tribune a lot.  My students loved the engaging content the site provided, and I loved that it was appropriate and free.  Most of all, we all enjoyed the discussion and natural conversation the topics sparked within our classroom.  Students became motivated to take a stand on a paticular subject matter or to dig deeper into learning about another topic of interest.  They started sharing their ideas online with other children, too.  This platform lent itself for many teachable moments.  
With our SMART Board, we were able to pull up comments and view them as a whole group, discuss proper digital etiquette when responding, encourage proper conventions and mechanics for an authentic audience, and respectfully disagree with other student’s opinions.  It was great!
It seemsed there was alwqays a piece of writing or topic that met our curriculum needs.  Tween Tribune enhanced purposeful writing in our classroom.  By nature, my students craved an outlet for their voice to be heard, and Tween Tribune allowed their voice to be heard from around the world, literally.
In closing, I find it note worthy to mention that in the time it took me to develop this post, a new article was added to the Tween Tribune site.  Who wouldn’t want to read more about a man selling baby alligators out of his trailer?
