To add a Blog Reader to your computer:
1. Go to www.google.com/reader and set up a free account.
2. Next go to the Chets blog sites to find blogs you want to read.
3. Paste in each url address to the reader service.
Adding all the bog sites might be an interesting start because the Reader will give you notice when each has been updated. Going through an entire blog of a teacher on your grade level last year will give you an overview of the year or looking back to August and September of last year will give you an idea of what to expect as the new year starts.
There are a few other blogs that you might find interesting:
The Principal's blog: Dream Leader
Chets Creek's blog of professional development: Live from the CreekA Year of Questions and Answers to and from the staff: Pixie Pointers
Now if all this seems just a little too overwhelming and complicated, don't worry. Melanie Holtsman will be offering workshops on setting up Blog Readers and setting up your own Blog. Most of us had to attend the workshops to figure it out, so don't worry, you'll be up and running in no time!
