Creative writing

Using blogs to foster creative writing with students provides a trigger for increasing motivation to improve and extend upon their storytelling skills. Blogging provides for real world feedback and I can see this as a fabulous way to provide for extension of students who are working at higher literacy levels within a cohort. The electronic ability to edit, re-write and continue to build upon an idea provides an excellent resource that can't get lost in a messy desk tray or thrown away, or eaten by the dog!!
