Interesting presentation by Gary Thompson of Saginaw Valley State U. outlining the use of Web logs in a writing classroom. Some sample student Web logs included.
Quote: “Creating weblogs in a writing class has one great advantage over most weblog composition: there is an established community of interested readers. Initially it may be necessary to require that students determine a weblog title, a theme, and a number of posts per week, and to require that they read and respond to several other students’ weblogs. Eventually this level of interaction becomes routine, and they begin to write for this group of readers as well as for the instructor.”
