In this workshop students will use the writing process to develop a blog about a burning question from their professional or personal lives. We will generate ideas, outline, draft, revise and publish at least two blog posts. Experienced bloggers will get the impetus to revitalize their current blogs and/or generate ideas for new ones, while novice bloggers will depart with a live blog on WordPress.com, and a working knowledge of basic free blogging. The workshop includes writing activities that can be used directly with students grades 2-12.
