Since I’ve joined the edublogs teacher challenge, I’ve come across so many interesting teaching blogs. It’s like I’ve stepped into the whole new world of blogging and all it took was a few clicks! Challenge#2 is about writing effective posts. I really like the analogy that they give, that the post is like the heartbeat of your blog!
How to keep your heartbeat of your blog!
5 Steps to an Effective Post:
1) Paragraphs– You have organized your writing into paragraphs. I get lost when I see just a whole bunch of text without paragraphs!
2) Purpose– There’s a purpose to what you’re sharing. It can be useful to other teachers and educators.
3) Pictures– There are pictures, photos, comics, clip art, etc that relate to your post.
4) Personal– You make your post personal in some way, whether it’s about an experience you had or something that is important to you. It can allow readers to connect to you as well.
5) Practice– The post gives you practical tips or spurs you to reflect on your practice as a teacher.
This is the best I could come up with after a really loong day of writing report card comments! 🙂
