Reading Teacher, v69 n4 p377-381 Jan-Feb 2016
There are numerous benefits of using blogs to discuss reading in the elementary classroom. Teachers can assess reading comprehension for individual students while managing several book clubs in a digital space. The resulting assessment-based data can be used to differentiate instruction. Additionally, students can experience growth as independent, self-reflective readers. Ideas for implementation within elementary classrooms and advice for beginning the blogging process are included.
