Classroom Blogs Story from the Seattle Times

This is a quote from Mark Ahlness in a recent Seattle Times story, Teachers art Reaching out to Students with a New Class of Blogs. 

“Never
in 25 years of teaching have I seen a more powerful motivator for
writing than blogs,” Ahlness said. “And that’s because of the audience.
Writing is not just taped on the refrigerator and then put in the
recycle bin. It’s out there for the world to see. Kids realize other
people are reading what they write.”

The Seattle Times: Living: Teachers are reaching out to students with a new class of blogs

It’s a good, balanced, and fairly comprehensive story about classroom blogging.
