Optional Step 5: Submit a blog post that pertains to student voice.

Some awesome Bettendorf Middle School students have developed a Tumblr for student voice submissions. We would love to have your voice heard!

Here is what we are looking for thanks to Chloe!

So, here’s some step by step instructions on how to create these posts and get them on the blog, just to be as clear as possible.

1. Pick your song! You can use the title of the song or a lyric in the song to use for your title, but it has to be related to the content of your post in some way or form. Also, it’d be best to keep the songs appropriate since it is a school related blog.
2. Write your blog post out. It can be as long or as short as you want it to be, as long as you get your point across. At least a decent paragraph would be preferable though, and if you right more, even better!
3. Attach a link to the song you chose to the post. It can be at the bottom of the post or somewhere you feel it would belong, just so the reader has something to reference.
Please submit your blog posts to Mr. Maurer (aarmau@gmail.com) to be loaded to the website.
As for the topics of the blog posts themselves, I would just stick to things within the school that you would like to change using student voice, or perhaps suggestions as to how we could possibly go about changing it as well to keep it from sounding like one big pity party.
If you have any other ideas or suggestions feel free to mention them! Or if you don’t get something, feel free to ask about it. Thank you!
