Promoting Revision through Blogging in a Second Grade Classroom
Young, Chase; Stover, Katie
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v3 n1 p14-28 Sum 2015
This study helped the researchers to determine if blogging as a revision strategy in a second grade classroom was beneficial. Nineteen second grade students wrote expository essays and made revisions and edits based on peer feedback in a blogging environment. Six elementary school teachers independently rated the students' writing samples using the second grade district writing rubric. The Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed-rank test was employed for the purpose of data analysis. According to the statistical analysis, writing scores increased significantly.
