Blogging next semester

I’ve been thinking about next semester and have decided to try blogging again with my writing students. I plan to have students write their early drafts of papers and post them to Moodle and then, when they are satisfied with them, they will post them to the blog.

When I do that, I know that I have to build an audience for them. Since I will probably only have two students in that class, we almost can’t be our own audience! If there is no audience and there are no comments, there is no reason to blog. I guess I will make an appeal to anyone who happens by here to go there (wherever ‘there” is) to read my students’ blogs.

So be prepared to be invited and encouraged to comment on my students’ posts next semester. Don’t say you weren’t warned!

    Nancy,
    I hope your students are ready for some comments. I have 40 students blogging away now, with another 40 coming on-line in the next two weeks.
    They would love to read your students work. Good luck!
