    So the "Mr. Turner's Corner" blog I linked is the official classroom blog to which your students were in fact pointed, but you are saying that one never had advertisements for anything, even your own book, right?

    Just trying to grok the situation.  There are at least three different blogspot blogs by the author of this diary that have "Room 210" in their names, and I guess he is saying 2 of them were never actually meant for the students of Room 210, while one was.

    Yes?

      All of the Room 210 sites were started when I was teaching in Room 210 at another middle school in the Joplin School District. In fact, in the room210sms.blogspot.com for my classroom blog, Mr. Turner's Corner, the SMS stands for South Middle School. I am currently in my fourth year teaching at East Middle School and have not been in a Room 210 for four years. Rather than start all of my blogs from scratch, I continued the three for my classroom site, my journalism club site, and for my third quarter research project. I have been in room 804 for the past two years.

      •  OK, thanks for explaining that (0+ / 0-)

        Ironically I once taught in a room 804 (college, but hey, it's the same profession).
