SEED 415/515
Student Blogs and RSS Feeds

Before 2007, students in the Seed 415 class put together history/social science home pages. Though students enjoyed putting their materials together, few of them ever put their home pages to practical use. In 2007, I began experimenting with having students put together history/social science blogs instead of home pages.  They found the process much easier, and my guess is that at least some students will find practical uses for the blogs when they are teaching themselves.  

Please sign up for an account at and begin putting together your blog.  Also, go to and set up an rss feed.

The blogs below are mostly "dummy" blogs, not yet made useful for classes.  My own blogs are perhaps better examples of how a blog might be of practical use in teaching.
