A Student Blog Smattering

With colleague Kerry Gallagher (@KerryHawk02) presenting to her high school cohorts the values of student blogging, I offered to share with her a few examples of our middle school students at work on their own Edublogs. The examples presented here are not necessarily the best, but ones that have some specific character to share. Currently all of my team’s roughly 100 students are blogging, sharing their work from ELA and Science class with the world (or judging by the clustrmaps, their immediate friends and family.)

Robert’s blog is a blend of classroom assignments from myself and ELA teacher, Steve Olivo (@SOlivo11), coupled with small snippets of his own storyline.

Kaylee’s blog shows commenting in action, with a friend of Kaylee providing comments on her blog post that range from classroom assignments to her own interests as well.

Maddie’s blog is a final example of some of the excellent writing a student can create and be proud of by publishing to the web.

    Thanks so much for sharing these blogs….It helps many of us get a better understanding of opportunities for our students…can't wait to use them for our "I Am a Rock" CRAFT activities!

    Thanks so much for posting this,Sean. I will definitely use these examples in my presentation. I'll let you know how it goes. It isn't until January, but I wanted to have a plan in mind.

  3. Always happy to help fellow educators! We had a group of teachers from Winchendon observe the school today. It just so happened my students were peer reviewing some blog posts. I showed the teachers my google reader with 100+ students and I think they were mildly stunned. It's great to share!
