Boy am I excited! The Social Studies Meets IT blog was actually read and commented on by someone outside of our school community!


He writes:
“Hi, I’m a secondary Social Studies teacher in Missouri. I have just recently started utilizing blogs in my classroom, and was very impressed by yours. I was wondering how you get all of your students blogs listed on your home page along the sidebar. Any help or tips you could give me would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a ton for the help.”

As Vicki A. Davis advises in 10 Habits of Bloggers that Win, I’m going to use pictures to describe these steps, just as I would in the classroom :)

Here you go:

1. From the Dashboard, choose: Links, Link Categories


Add as many categories as you need (one at a time) for your classes. I have 3 blocks, so I sorted mine into Block D, Block E and Block H.


2. Once you have all your categories added, you can start adding a link for each student in each class. Go to Links, Add Links.


Include a link name for each link (one at a time), then choose which category (i.e. class) the link should file under.


When you’re done, check your site to make sure they all fall under the right categories and are linked properly. If you have a problem, you can always go to Links, Manage links to make changes.
