I have been thinking and talking about blogging for a few years now. I have taught second grade, and blogged with the kids, both on my teacher blog and them on their blogs. As a Coetail student I blogged as a requirement (5 posts per unit), and enjoyed the process, even though it was a requirement.
In our Middle School I have been approached by a couple of teachers who would like to explore blogging with me. They had questions such as
“How can I make things so that the kids are excited to blog?”
“How should I assess their blogposts?”
“Who is going to read these student posts, really?”
All of these wonderings I share with them, and want to explore myself.
There are several benefits of blogging that I believe in:
I am gathering friends and fellow educators who have experience with student blogs, and I an trying to sort through these questions and issues. Please leave a comment, or join our Google Plus community dedicated to this exploration.
