Blogging with students (3)

I then set them the following task:

Look again at my blog entry British Sports News. Then answer the questions below on your blog.

  1. Good blogging is NOT:

    1. a diary: Dear Blog, Today I got up at 6.30. I had
      a cup of coffee for breakfast. I brushed my teeth. I went to work by train. Then
      I came home. I had dinner and went to bed at 11 pm.
      This is not a good blog. Why not? (Discuss with your classmates and write your answer on your blog).

    2. Today, I visited this website. It was interesting. Then I visited that website. It was interesting, too. This is not a good blog. Why not? (Discuss with your classmates and write your answer on your
      blog).

    3. Today, I found this news article. Please read it:
      Police have confirmed they are now investigating the discovery of two car bombs in the West End of London. Police said the second device was found in a Mercedes hours after the car had been given a parking ticket in Cockspur Street and towed to Park Lane.Another Mercedes, with a bomb made up of 60 litres of petrol, gas cylinders and nails, had been found outside a nightclub in Haymarket at 0130 BST.Both devices were similar, viable and clearly linked, police said.At a news conference on Friday evening, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke, head of Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command, said the discovery of the second device was “obviously troubling”.“There was a considerable amount of fuel and gas canisters, as in the first vehicle. There was also a substantial quantity of nails,” he said.

      This is not a good blog. Why not? (Discuss with your classmates and write your answer on your blog).

Woah! This was hard, this required thinking!
