Blogs for interactive intensive and extensive reading
Paper-based texts face inherent limitations (physical and interactive to name a couple) that can be overcome by using blogs instead. Although we often use blogs as tools to share with other teachers, create a classroom community and facilitate student projects, they lend themselves well to content for reading-based lessons. In this workshop, we’ll look at how teacher- or ultimately student- created reading blogs attack the limitations of paper-based texts and increase engaging interactivity between student and text.
