IB History Bloggers: Writing for a Global Audience

Check out the student blogs for Ms. Petersen's IB History course. Students are sharing their learning on one of five countries (Lebanon, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria or Iraq), and they are explaining their thinking in clear and interesting ways. Ms. Petersen has also encouraged them to "be provocative" with their ideas.
