Blogging Unit: Digital Citizenship

Daily Prompt #6: Senses Exploration

Practice utilizing all the five senses in your writing: see, hear, feel, taste, smell.  Write for five minutes describing this classroom and all the five senses you’re experiencing at this exact moment.

Before we start talking about blogging, let’s share our writing goals with one another. Be sure to write your goals down somewhere in your notebooks. On every rubric for a graded assignment, I will ask you to write one of your goals on the top and explain how you’re working towards it.


Okay, on to blogging. In this class, you will be creating a blog.

What is a blog?

a personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.

Why have one?

After next week, you can officially call yourself a blogger!

But before you do, we need to talk about something very important: digital citizenship.

Here is an overview of my digital citizenship expectations for this class.

Finally, here is a digital citizenship contract everyone needs to sign.


With the time remaining, let’s start talking about blogging basics. Today, you will work at your tables in groups reading and responding to questions about how to blog. We will continue the lesson tomorrow.
