Anne Davis has switched from Manila to Wordpress which perhaps explains why I can no longer find this post on the subject of why teachers have students blog (I've saved a copy here):
My thoughts on blogsHowever, she does have another more recent post on the same subject. She quotes Nancy McKeand request for why teachers blog with students (this was for a presentation on blogging that Nancy did recently). There are 20 replies in the comments.
Hi my name is Sammey. My thoughts on blogs is that it help me to spell much better. Because I did not know how to spell that good. And I use to hate to write but now I kind of love to write. And I like to write more because people write me back. And it helps me to get my thoughts out about all the things that I need to say.
