Ashley Bleimes (USA Today) wrote a nice peice about 8th graders using blogs in the classroom. They are talking about Guerrilla Season, a civil war era book, and even the author is going the blog. Besides getting students to interact with material and each other, they purposely help students become better writers by organizing ideas, versioning, etc. I love it! Boring essays be gone!
