Can Teachers Use Blogging to Make Better Writers?

Liz Dwyer:

The desire for reader feedback keeps the students excited about wanting to write more posts, and they’re eager to improve their writing skills for their readers’ benefit. “They now have a worldwide forum instead of an audience of one,” Christens said, noting that the students “see themselves as writers—real writers.”

Absolutely wonderful.

  1. I started teaching my students to blog back in the early 90’s. I called them “logs,” but they were really early blogs—back before any of us were on-line. So interesting to note now how many of my former students have blogs—and write such interesting posts.
