This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and edtech enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt. 

Oral histories are how society passes on cultural beliefs and experiences. In the modern day, blogging has become a surrogate for those histories.

Stories interpret our experiences and help others learn about the worlds around them. They help us connect on an emotional level and create empathy.

Beginning a blog post with a story has also shown to be one of the best ways to engage a reader and build an audience.

Prompt: Write a post that tells a story. 

Tell a story about a time in your career as an educator that you want to share. It can be a positive memory, a time you wish you could change the outcome, a student you remember, or just a class lesson you want to share.

Happy blogging!
