New Blog - with a group of students
On Tuesdays and Thursdays I'll be writing with a group of students on the edublogs platform. I thought it would be nice to begin a new blog with them to teach them how to manage a blog (many parts) and how to write a Slice of Life per the Two Writing Teachers blog that I've found so inspiring and supportive. We had our first class Thursday, a whirlwind 60 minutes. They looked at blogs, chose their titles and filled out information so I could create the blogs. We brainstormed ideas for the first post, which will be due next Tuesday, hard copy, so we can share and talk about comments first, then learn how to post. They are so excited and I think a little bit disappointed that we all weren't up and publishing immediately. If you have a class or even a few students that would like to interact and share with my group, I'd love it. Let me know in the comments, or in the comments at my new blog, Writing Works.
