Using a Blog in the School Library

This year I have been working with six students on their reading. Each is at vastly different stages of their reading journey and participate in other more structured reading intervention experiences than just their time with me.

I wonder if we could start blogging about the books we read in our group. I could provide a prompt for them, or they could write their own reflections if they are confident. This process could improve their social skills within a group, and give the quieter readers a voice (Morris, 2018), as they start to comment on each other’s posts. They have already proven that they enjoy using their Chromebooks for learning, as we have done a Padlet activity, and read some eBooks.
