Rebelz of 79

One of the projects I've recently started with my fifth, sixth, and seventh grade classes requires the development of a blog. I'm not sure exactly how to work this out, but what I would like to do is start a class blog of sorts that can be accessed by students and teachers in the States for potential collaboration purposes.

Right now, for the first assignments, we are working on making personal introduction letters. These would be among the first postings on the blog(s) for each of the classes.

I am thinking about doing the same thing with my eighth grade students, with the autobiographies they are doing. Except, it would be really amazing to do video recordings, if at all possible. We'll see.

Regardless, the point of this post is to discuss an email I just recieved from a student regarding the name of said blog... their suggestion is "Rebelz of 79." I told them we will have to vote on it in the next class, but I have a feeling I'm going to be rigging the election if necessary to make sure this is the winner. Yeah... I love my job.


  1. Does Rebelz of 79 mean anything or is it just some completely random name they came up with?

  2. That was totally random..... I just thought... You know, we're the worst, most trouble-making, most outrageous and noisy 6th grade class (not just 6th, but all) in the school, we're kind of rebels. I just came up with Rebelz of 79 (79 is our school's number)....
