Why Would I Use It?
Blogging can improve students' writing skills and help them build confidence as writers. Blogging encourages risk-taking, ownership of writing, and the ability to communicate ideas to a large and public audience. Blogging also gives all students a voice. 

 

 Possible Uses for Students:
  • Respond to reading 
  • Maintain a writer's notebook or journal
  • Post personal, reflective entries
  • Share student-generated research
  • Practice and develop audience, purpose, and voice
  • Create a showcase of final projects
  • Develop an online image
