Blogging in the classroom

When I was younger, journaling was the way to express ones emotions from the inside out onto the paper. Today, the popular way of journaling is keeping up a blog. In the classroom, having students blog once a week on a topic that they prefer or enjoy will allow them to freely write and express themselves without the pressure of being graded or evaluated on their performance. This type of writing environment can elicit more meaningful writing from students because they are not stressed about earning a good grade. This could work for any age in high school and in my classroom, I would use it as a participation activity, for those students who don’t feel as comfortable speaking in class in front of their peers.
