Looking at blogs

Posted: August 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hey  gang,

As we started to look at other student’s work in class today relating to blogs I thought it would be a good idea to take a more detailed look.

Go to the following link (blogs) and then on the right select the student who has the matching student number as yourself.

So, tonight you are going to be exploring other students blogs. You are going to be looking at the following criteria:

1. The written content. How are they writing? It is fluent? Does the writer know the audience? Do they provide detail where appropriate?

Write a paragraph explaining what they do well as a writer. Then write a paragraph explaining where you feel they need to improve.

2. Topics: Writers and publishers have to choose a topic to write about. What do you think about the topic the student you are reading has done? How do you think they are selecting the topic? Write a paragraph to explain.

3. Presentation. What do you think of the visual presentation of the blog? What do you like? What would you change? Write a paragraph explaining.

There you go. We will talk more about blogs in the morning.

  1. Hello! I have been reading student blogs for an hour or more, now, and I must take this time to compliment you on the quality of your students’ writing. I’ve been working on teaching my students that blogging is a formal type of writing–Posts need to be edited/proofread before publishing, as your blog post says something about you. Here’s what your student blogs tell me:

    *They care and take pride in their work.
    *They are conscientious, hard-working, and thoughtful.
    *They have an excellent teacher 🙂

    Keep up the good work!
