Sharing My Voice: Using Blogging in the Middle School Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If you give students a place to write that they can get excited about-- they are more willing to get their words out and share their voices. Blogging seems to excite them as it is a familiar medium for the technologically savvy student. As a writer, I wanted to show my students a way to showcase their own writing, and also have a way for them to complete writing projects in a medium they are both familiar with and would find more interesting to utilize beyond a Google Doc. We'll look at two projects using Google Sites and find a way to utilize it within your own classroom.
