Why using a blog in the English lesson..

A great way having our students write is using a class blog.
We can either have one blog for the entire class or have our students open their own blogs.

They can write about their hobbies,area of interest,  vacations, friends and other things they like. They can also make a Diary Blog, add pictures, links and other information.

The best thing is having student SHARE while writing in English.
They can post on their friends' blogs and/or read posts written by others on their own blog.

For teachers it is a great way to get to know the students and to check their writing and evaluate it.

There is a way we can "upload" a file without actually uploading it to our blog.....
Well, we should upload our file to a shared documents web, such as Scribd or 4Shared and then put the link to it.

for example:
