This time I’m teaching English Composition. I’ve not (yet) persuaded the students to blog, but I have created a blog for the class. I’m also using the official WebCT site.

Composition instruction is, of course, a natural for blogging, both for and by students. I was hoping some would be interested in web logs as a digital alternative to the required reading journal. I do have one student who actually has a blog, which is promising.

I notice that a large number of those involved in eBN, the Educational Blogger’s Network, are Composition and Rhetoric faculty. This is not at all surprising, given the nature of web logs, and the fact that Composition facutly have been in the forefront of the teaching with technology movement, including a national Computers and Writing conference and the twenty year old Computers and Composition journal.


Buy me a Coffee! If you find this post or this site interesting, and would like to see more, buy me a coffee. While I may actually buy coffee, I’ll probably buy books to review.
