My students are beginning to prepare to become bloggers. Their first assignment was to research blogging and prepare a one paragraph essay describing what they envision blogging will be like. Once the essays were presented, as a fun activity, they were given the task of using their essays in tagexdo to create a word cloud about blogging. Some of them were given permission to use some additional words from their research so that their pictures really took shape. Below is my example of that assignment. This assignment became the first post on the students’ new blogs.
