PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you want to know how to keep middle school students engaged? Meet them where they spend most of their free time-on the computer! They will gladly drown their evenings in social networking, gaming, searching, and chatting. This assignment was inspired by a student favorite, Instagram! Now they can spend time online meeting the Common Core ELA standards. I was surprised to find my students logging in and commenting on weekends, evenings, and even in their free time. This is what authentic learning is all about!

This assignment addresses 11 Common Core Standards and hits Reading Literacy, Production and Distribution of Writing, Comprehension & Collaboration, and Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas.

The 5-page word document includes teacher notes and suggestions, a list of 11 Common Core Standards with which this task aligns, step-by-step student instructions, an example, an author rubric for all blog posts (criteria: content, organization, style/ language usage), and input for how to comment on classmates’ blog posts. Three pages are ready to print for students.
