Getting More Out of Blogging

How blogs are usedDo you blog? Blogging in English is great way to practice your writing. If you have a blog, send your link to or post in comments. We can start a study group blog roll. 

Have you thought about blogging but have doubts or aren't sure about how to get started. Read the article cited and linked below for more about blogging. 

Commenting on other blogs is a good way to start: a beginner's guide to commenting on blogs and lessons in commenting skills. Grammar Girl has a good post on how to write great comments and reminds us that "there are many more places than blogs that you can leave comments these days: on Facebook walls, news articles, photos, videos, and more."

While there is a wide range of reasons why educators use blogs; there are four main blogging approaches taken when educators use blogs with students.
These are:
  1. Class blog only – the educator publishes all the posts on the class blog and the students may respond by leaving comments.
  2. Class blog only – the educator and students both publish posts on the class blog.
  3. Student blogs only – each student has their own individual blog and there is no class blog.
  4. Class blog and student blogs – the educator publishes all the posts on the class blog and each student has their own individual blog.
