Elwood-John H. Glenn High School teacher Mr. Garret Chesnoff won a Technology Integration Award from Western Suffolk BOCES for a blogging project he conducted this year with his journalism class. This course is designed to expose students to both print and broadcast journalism. Over the course of a semester, students learn to write news stories, editorials, interviews, and feature stories. The blogging project added a new dimension to the curriculum this year. Students were challenged with producing articles that were ready to be reviewed not only by their teacher, but by their peers and the rest of the world. Posting articles on a blog provided students with a realistic journalism experience. 

For Mr. Chesnoff’s recognition by Western Suffolk BOCES, he has been awarded $1,000 for use in his classroom. Congratulations!
