Using Blogs to Promote Literary Response during Professional Development
Colwell, Jamie; Hutchison, Amy; Reinking, David
Language Arts, v89 n4 p232-243 Mar 2012
This article describes a project that studied 15 preservice teachers' perceptions of and reactions to responding to children's and young adult literature using a Ning blog. These perceptions and reactions provided insight into various practical aspects of using a social networking blog to facilitate literature response in a teacher education course. Further, the authors considered what these perceptions and reactions may mean for the larger field of teacher education and professional development. (Contains 3 figures.)
