Abstract:

Anne Becher uses student blogs to teach her fourth year Spanish writing course. At the beginning of the semester, students chose a topic to investigate for the duration of the course and publish their essays on their personal blogs. Students are also required to visit and leave comments on each other's blogs. Anne chose to use blogs as a writing platform for her course because she believes that it "is pedagogically aligned with the most productive way that we know how of teaching writing."
