Looking Back on 2011

Kleinspiration

With that in mind, I’ve put together a brief list of Kleinspiration’s most viewed posts for 2011. Jill Brandeberry and I used this tool with our middle school social studies classes in 2011. With the end of the year rapidly approaching, I thought it would be interesting to take a moment and reflect upon the first year of Kleinspiration and see what has worked best for our audience. If you’ve missed any of these posts, it’s a great time to take a look and see what you’re missing.
