Notes From McTeach: Learning to Blog Using Paper
That's right...you heard me! And it's one of my favorite activities all year long. Paper Blogs. I use them to introduce my seventh graders to the idea of blogging and, more importantly, commenting. Let me just be clear right from the beginning. This was not my original idea! We also had to decorate our new blogs so they might reflect our own personality. I didn't require that their paper blogs actually look like blogs (we use Google Sites, in case you were wondering), but several of my students chose to be tech-creative. Of course, I'm getting ahead of myself a bit. After we were done writing and decorating our blogs in our blogging workshop, it was time to read some blogs. As you probably know, teachers are just great big kids at heart. Before I continue with my take on the lesson, let me share with you the original lesson developed by Leonard Low and shared with us at our workshop: The McTeach Version Step One Thank you.
