  •  No, the audio says the opposite of what you claim. (1+ / 0-)

    At around 3:26 in the recording, you were asked:

    QUESTION: Room 210 Discussion. At the top it states that this blog is for students and former students of East(?) Middle School...That is what this blog states at the top. Correct?

    ANSWER: Yes.

    You also said in the recording that you set up the [Room 210 Discussion] blog for your students to "continue having discussions about the kinds of issues that we talked about in class. It started out real well,..."

    So when you now write that the "blog in question has never been used as a classroom blog and my students have never been told about it," you're contradicting what you stated to the lady in the audio and what is written at the top of the Room 210 Discussion blog.

    With all due respect, given what is stated on the blog itself, you can't blame school administrators for believing that you encouraged your middle school students to download, read, and discuss a book that you wrote--which "contains sex"--when you posted it to a blog that specifically states, "this blog is for students and former students of East Middle School."
