Trying to learn what is this of a classroom blog and clearing some ideas before sharing the project with the students, I have found this blog with several good instructions like:
Tom and Mariela suggest some specific ways to achieve more successful and productive classroom blogging. These include:
- Encouraging students to generate their own guidelines for blogs.
- Asking students to create “blog rolls” that engage the same discourse communities that they wish to address.
- Integrating students’ blog posts in day-to-day classroom discussions.
- Pursue cross-classroom networks of readers.
Although these are only a few examples of how to implement blogs in the writing class, Tom and Mariela point out two important things for instructors to consider: (1) students should be able to recognize a rhetorical purpose of their blog by (2) understanding a clear context for their writing. When both of these elements are well planned, the classroom blog promises to deliver many exciting possibilities for composition classes.
