It’s not like blogging is something new anymore…
Of course, this would be much easier if we had a scope and sequence for writing to begin with – just a standard format to follow that we could embed digital literacy skills into at each level (something like this). But, since we don’t have one already in place, I figure we can start with a basic overview for blogging. Considering I couldn’t find one to build on when I did a simple Google search, it seems like something that might be useful to more teachers than just us at YIS.
