Bells keep Jingling: There are still more Santas to come! | Saundz | American English Pronunciation Software

Did you know that Santa Claus, the embodiment of the spirit of Christmas, doesn’t always deliver presents on Christmas Eve, i. e. December 24th?
Saundz English Pronunciation's insight:

Did you know that Santa Claus, the embodiment of the spirit of Christmas, doesn’t always deliver presents on Christmas Eve, i.  e.  December 24th?

Oh no, in many countries Santa Claus goes down the chimneys on other dates! For one thing, considering the number of good children in the world, it appears logical that he cannot reach all of them in a single night.

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom | American English Pronunciation Online | Scoop.it

First and foremost, student writing is improving by leaps and bounds. When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers. Not every post is perfect, but the majority are well written and free of grammar and usage issues that I am so familiar with seeing in their other work. If they become sloppy, all I need to do is politely comment about it on their blog, and I don't see it again.

This is a useful experience of developing writing skills.  As a follow-up activity, writing by way of blogging could enable students to get a feel for the issue studied, and assume responsibity for public writing.

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, May 21, 2013 12:39 AM

First and foremost, I think it is safe to say that student writing is improving by leaps and bounds when it comes to technology. Blogs are a brilliant way to for students to keep an ongoing "journal" where they can write about whatever they want and improve their writing skills as a result. This article looks at a teacher who introduced blogging to her junior students and found huge improvements as a result. "When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers". Blogs are motivational and more interesting than conventional writing assignemnts, and students are consequently more open to learning from them as a result.
