The Perfect School

I came across a site called ‘The school I’d like’ where children wrote about their ideas of a perfect school. A couple of the ideas involved using dogs at school – one idea is for children to read aloud to a dog and the other is for them to be there as a friend. The school I am currently working in has begun using what they call a ‘therapy dog’ who goes to classes and provides a calming effect on the children who are maybe anxious or agitated about something. The dog provides companionship and tactile therapy.

I initially went to the site to explore a method of engaging students in multi-modal projects in the classroom by having students blog or respond in an online medium which could be accessed by a global audience.
