In this Kidblog Webinar, Doug Robertson shares how he uses blogs in his fifth grade class to break up the traditional school-based writing process and make it more relevant and exciting. Doug provides tips for moderating your students’ comments section and discusses the benefits of publishing students’ work for a wider audience.
In this video, you will learn:
- The benefits of giving students the opportunity to write for themselves, not the teacher
- How to be a guide for students, helping them navigate their sharing with the world
- How to use the comments section while avoiding negativity – paying attention to what our kids are writing and who is writing back
- How an audience is the best way to get students to revise a draft more than once
