janlgordon's curator insight, April 18, 8:45 PM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Alice Elliott because she explains the importance of carefully editing your blog posts.

 

Improve your writing with quality content.

 

How to Effectively Edit Your Articles

 

It's tempting to hit the publish button right away after writing a blog post. I agree that in order to make the best of it you need to carefully look your copy over first.

 

Elliott explains the process of how to edit your articles and improve your writing at the same time.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • It's important to first do planning and research before the writing begins. Use an outline of the structure with a beginning, middle, and end.

 

  • After writing a post give yourself some time to process it. Save the editing process after you have completed your article.

 

  • Read your completed work out loud to yourself. Notice the flow of the piece, and whether there were any mistakes you may have missed.

Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online

Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
For the past few months Michael Drennan's GCSE and A level students have been doing all their writing via student blogs.

 

Students realise how high the bar of public domain writing is. This can be initially intimidating, but that removes all apathy or sense of the humdrum. Asking all students to write blogs as learning unfolds and interlinks empowers the teacher to be more supportive because they're less tied to the bureaucracy; it raises challenge levels; it enables IT-skilling; it lets students see their own progress and differentiates well; it means more productive and accelerating learning-talk over rote-writing.

I've used Kidblog with my middle school students, and wouldn't hesitate to use it with younger students as well.

It is important to spend about the same amount of time creating the content to share the article on social media as well.This is very important.

Alison Rostetter's curator insight, July 19, 2013 7:07 AM

one day, I'll find time to look at all this.  But not today!
