STUDENT SELF ASSESSMENT: BLOGGING
Already, some have adapted my directions to fit their personal styles. You might consider this a positive spin on who is posting on a regular basis and who is watching other people write. I only noted a schedule for posting to make sure they were thinking about this every week. It worked, even if some have posted 7 (!) times and some have posted twice. Every single student is doing it their own way, regardless of my instructions. WIN.
I agonized over the assessment: should I tell them what to judge, should I have them write up an assessment of their own? I went for the Middle Way. Below is the link to the questions I am providing them as they review their personal stats (thank you Blogger for adding stats to the Dashboard this year). Considering that I am a verbose writer and speaker, did I say too much? Will a handout like this cramp their style? What do you think? Thanks.
