Blogs make close links with classroom learning
Developing quality commenting skills
If commenting skills are not taught and constantly reinforced, students will limit their comments to things like “I like your blog!” or “2KM is cool!”. While enthusiasm is high with these sorts of comments, students are not developing their literacy skills or having meaningful interactions with other members of the blogging community. Conversations in the comment section of a blog are such rich and meaningful learning experiences for students. Conversations begin with high quality comments.
Blogging is an authentic avenue for developing student literacy skills. When you invest the time in teaching, modelling, revising and promoting high quality writing of comments, students can make great gains in their overall literacy development.
One thought on “Happy Blogging – How to write a quality comment.”
Hello Students, Panda and Teacher from California,
I think that those solutions all about commenting are perfect ways to find out how to actually do it! I have learnt something about it as I watched your clip! I think I learnt that if you do a comment you have to do it thick long and sharp! If you don’t do this very important things as you do a comment on your blog it might make it very hard for people to understand! I hope 5/6 J has learnt something about commenting on the blog! Same as you guys 3/4 L!
