Forum discussions in HHS English classes

Teachers in several HHS classes use Moodle Forums to allow students to participate in after-class discussions with each other and with their teachers.

For example, in Ms. Finnegan's Essay Writing class, quality development of a research paper requires in depth individualized feedback between teacher and the students. Ms. Finnegan's student post topics, themes, and ideas in the forum, and Ms. Finnegan can provide suggestions and critiques. Because this is a forum, students can benefit from suggestions made to other students as well.
