  23. 23. Setting the Bar High <ul><li>Find an exemplary class blog, direct your students to it, and give them time to read over the post and comments. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask them for feedback—which comments are powerful and why?

How is it different from turning in a piece of writing to your teacher? Or having a large class discussion? </li></ul>
  24. 24. What We’ve Liked About the Blog <ul><li>Quiet students are given a powerful voice. </li></ul><ul><li>Students grow more adept at reacting to each other’s ideas. </li></ul><ul><li>Class is truly extended beyond the walls of the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Students produce information on the web instead of passively absorbing it. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology is integrated into every subject. </li></ul><ul><li>Students take their words seriously and begin to understand what it means to be published. </li></ul><ul><li>Students just like it. A lot. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Establishing Expectations <ul><li>Have your students create the class blog expectations, or have your blog expectations ready to go. </li></ul><ul><li>Print out or direct them to the AHS “Safe Blogging Policy” as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Talk about blog safety; emphasize that the blogs are linked directly to the school and need to follow the class guidelines as well. Let them know that administrators can and will read their personal blogs. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Send in the Reinforcements… <ul><li>Students need feedback, they get excited when they see their work published. If possible approve their comments instantly. </li></ul><ul><li>Try having a blog for homework that night for immediate reinforcement of what they have just learned. </li></ul><ul><li>Try to give them immediate positive feedback; bring up their blogs the next day and commend them on what they did well. </li></ul>
  27. 27. A BIG Suggestion <ul><li>Use the blog to replace something that you’re already doing; don’t use it to add. </li></ul><ul><li>Never blog for blogging’s sake. Think about how the blog can be used to enhance an assignment (links to audio/video clips, artwork, online texts, other blogs, etc.). </li></ul>
  28. 28. Do a Little Exploring <ul><li>Take a little time to check out some class blogs that have worked pretty well. </li></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What do you like? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you not understand or question? </li></ul><ul><li>How can you use this in your classes? </li></ul>
