FirstClass ED provides a personal area called My Journals. You can use this area to create personal journals and class journals, and contribute to them. Your teacher likely has ideas about how you should use your class journal. Consider creating personal journals also. Use a personal journal to
• record your thoughts
• make lists
• practice your writing
• write stories, poetry, articles
• store information you gather from the Internet
• store recipes, directions, or anything else that is important to you.
Here is an example of a student's My Journals area. Class journals are in the top pane and personal journals are in the lower pane.
