I am thrilled to read a blogpost about the importance of blogging for English Language Learners! Blogging is an outstanding way to get ELLs, and all students, to understand the pragmatics of written communication. In a world that has gone text, post, photo, and soundbite, give students a purpose for writing out thoughts and sharing experiences is just a great idea. We recently added that component to our Writing in the Common Core workshop for teachers of English Language Learners (https://training4teachers.com/professional-development-institute/profess…) and have heard from teachers that blogging is super-motivating and has increased engagement for their students. Your blogpost did a great job of laying out the steps to get students involved in real and meaningful ways.
