From guest posts providing insight into the Festival theme to the already popular Marker Monday series, community members will be invited to join the conversation and share GHS posts with their online networks. The blog will also serve as the hub for news about GHF events and messages from friends and supporters. Written for a general audience, these blog posts would make great informational texts to promote literacy across the curriculum.
