PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students love technology, collaborating, and having choice. They don't always love to write.

However, I have found student blogging to be a very effective way to engage student writers. The combination of choice, having an audience read and comment on their work and commenting on others' work makes it a perfect format for writing, especially for grades 7-9.

Included in this resource is everything you'll need to get started blogging easily, and in an organized fashion with your students!

-An intro to blogging printable for students
-20 types of posts to choose from and a description of each
-Blogging and commenting expectations
-Teacher notes for how to set up student accounts and write your own introductory post to students
-Student notes for writing their first blog posts
-Notes (for teacher/student) for how to insert pictures, files, use tags, categories and hyperlinks (for later on when you're ready)
-2 student samples of blogs
-optional rubric for blog writing

If you are interested in engaging your students and maybe trying something new this year, why not give blogging a shot?
