Review of North Art Teacher
Northern Art Teacher is a blog by Colleen Rose. Colleen is a visual arts teacher from North Western Ontario, Canada. By using this blog, Colleen is trying to challenge herself to stay accountable. Her goal is to try new activities in the classroom in order to refresh her learning environment. She wants to use podcasts, blogging, virtual tours, ad online portfolios to spark a change in her curriculum design.
I really like Colleen's reasoning for making her blog. As a teacher, one should always be trying to improve the classroom. This blog shows that Colleen is constantly looking for new ideas. Not only is Colleen using her own blog to spike discussion, but she continuously views and posts other teachers' blogs and ideas. Her website has a great layout and design and is very professional for a teacher.
One of my favorite posts from Northern Art Teacher was concerning classroom design on January 22, 2017. She states that she has been tossing around ideas in her to redesign her classroom. She brings in fellow blogger, Aviva Dunsiger, who shows on an Instagram post how she uses her classroom design to benefit brain break. Classroom design is a very important factor in a successful classroom.
Overall, Colleen Rouse's blog, Northern Art Teacher, is great resource!
