So many teachers are teaching blogging. I thought it would be helpful to see how I teach blogging to my students. Here's my in-flip video.
You'll also see starting at minute 7 how I teach my students to begin blogging using our private Ning and a glimpse into the Ning. You'll see the initial skills I teach students. (Titling, embedding, and writing style.)
- What is a blog?
- Why are blogs important?
- How will we blog?
- How should blog headlines be written?
- What type of voice and language do you use in a blog post?
- What is one way to use elements on the web in your blog post?
For blog readers who own a copy of Reinventing Writing — consult Chapter 8 (p 127) for details on how to teach blogging and microblogging.
On a technical note, I had a few issues with volume levels on slide 2 and 3 and near the end, so you'll need to turn up the volume there. I'll have to re-record but haven't had a chance yet.
