Birth of 28 New Bloggers

It's that time of semester again. Tonight I introduced blogging to my class of pre-service English and foreign language teachers. Their new blogs, mostly without content yet, are here.

Last year I just got them set up with their blogs and didn't push it much harder than that. It wasn't a graded part of the course. By the end of the semester, only 4 or 5 of them were still actively blogging. This time, I'm giving credit for the activity and being more specific about what I'm expecting. We'll see how it goes and whether it sticks past the semester's end. I'm looking forward to seeing what they write!
