GHS Creative Writing teacher, Diane Euston, is working hard to provide her students an authentic learning opportunity by creating blogs to showcase their writing. Students created Blogger accounts and will post each writing assignment they complete throughout the semester to their personal blogs in hopes to gain an authentic audience that will provide feedback and comments on their work. Several students are excited to share their blogs with the public and have already begun posting their writing. Check out these amazing GHS Creative Writing students and be sure to check back throughout the semester as they add more:
Blogging is a powerful platform for students in any grade or class. Not only does it provide opportunities for regular writing practice, but it also creates a public portfolio that showcases students' growth over time while inviting feedback from people outside of the classroom. Additionally, blogging helps students to create a positive digital footprint that goes beyond their Instagram and Twitter accounts!
