Model Blogs for Classroom Use

Here are some blogs that can be used as good examples when teaching students how to blog. They are quite different to each other demonstrating different ways of getting a point across.

This blog demonstrates the effective use of personal perspective and photographs of the experience for those who are more visual. It can be used as a model for year 3 children because it’s simplicity and conventional structure.

This one could be used to demonstrate that an effective blog can include links and references to other sites to get even more ideas. It does not follow the traditional linear structure of archives, which is good because students can see that blogs can be arranged in a multitude of ways. This blog would be a useful model for year 5 and/or 6 children because it is slightly more complex and the comments on the blog could lead into a discussion of internet collaboration.
