Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom | 21 century education | Scoop.it

 

This year, I admitted a hard truth to myself. I wasn't having my students write enough. In an attempt to follow Kelly Gallagher’s advice that students should write more than we can assess, I decided to have them blog weekly.

One Assignment, Many Objectives

After giving students some practice and solidifying my ideas by talking to a colleague and past student, I developed this assignment. I tried to ensure that the assignment would:

Address multiple Common Core standardsHold students accountable while minimizing stressBe structured enough to provide clarity while giving freedom to experimentBe varied enough to keep students engagedGet students to write for multiple purposes
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

I love blogging and getting my students blogging too!  I have seen their writing flourish,  when they realise they are writing for a larger audience!  Their sense of humour, style and unique opinion comes to the fore!  Blogs are a wonderful way for young people to share their worldview!
