Blog Lesson Plan

Using Blogs in the Classroom:

     In order to combine modern technology and course curriculum, I think it would be beneficial to use blogs consistently throughout the whole year.  Each student can create and maintain their own individual blog and use it as a platform to submit all major assignments.  Their blogs would have multiple components:

  • a page to turn in all major papers
  • a page specifically for journaling or free writes
  • a page to continue class discussions or thoughts brought up in class
  • a page to ask questions or clarify class assignments or expectations
Finally, students would be required to read each other's blogs and comment on them.  Students would also be expected to come to class everyday with an idea from someone else's blog to share with the class.  This would be the forum all assignments and class communication takes place.
