How to use Blogs

Posted on 22 July, 2014 at 4:35

1. Preparation

• Create a Blog using Blog Ed or Google Blog (Blogspot)

• Create a question that is to be answered.

 


2. In class

• Explain the question to the class and have a class discussion, think tank session or think pair share on how to best answer the question

• Discuss what elements a ‘perfect’ answer should include

• Students begin answering the question

• 10 mins before the lesson ends, ask students to mark each others work using questions such as:

a. What do you think is the strongest part of the blog? This could be a certain post, the writing style, the graphic design, the use of alternative media, the images, etc. What makes this element so strong?

b. Is there a part of the blog you find confusing? A part that doesn’t seem to quite match the rest or the character for which it was designed? A link for which you don’t understand the connection? Can you give some suggestions for how to improve that part?

c. After reading the blog, what would you like to know more about? Is there a post that leaves you with questions? Write down at least two questions to help your partner further develop this blog.

d. Did you notice any major typos or grammatical issues? Please note anything glaring in this space.
