There are a few things to consider when starting a classroom blog. First, what is your goal for the blog? Are you hoping to generate enthusiasm for your class, engage students in discussions, or simply document your lessons? Once you have determined your goals, think about what type of content you would like to share.
Do you want to write about your class’s projects or activities? What ideas do you have for teaching tips or engaging students in dialogue? Once you have a general idea of what you want to write about, start brainstorming potential topics.
Once you have a list of potential topics, it’s time to start writing! Start by drafting a general introduction and then flesh out each post with specific information. Make sure to take time to cite sources and include images if possible.
In the conclusion, reflect on how blogging in the classroom has enhanced your teaching and provide some tips for others who want to try it out.
