Creative Writing and Blogs

While reading literature is very important in an English setting, writing is becoming more and more prevalent in high school. I would use blogs in my classroom to help students exercise their creative writing skills. I could very well require a short story, poem, or other piece of creative writing every week that students can comment on and create. Also, I could use blogs to get students started on writing their thesis on papers. The students could blog their thesis for a certain paper, and I then would be able to check up on progress and be more of a helpful teacher.

Great idea. I would really enjoy something set up like that myself just for the creative writing aspect. It would also be a easier way to keep track of assignments and when they were submitted by the students.
