I provide teacher training on how to use blogs with ESL learners. I have
a website set up with samples of teachers blogs and a handout on how to
set up your own blog that can be used with students or by you to start
your own blog. http://www.theMLC.org/blogs

These ESL teacher blogs might provide some ideas on how to get started
using blogs with your own students. To understand how these blogs are
used with students begin at the bottom of the page and scroll up.
Because students will see the bottom posting first, new postings are
always at the top. Some of them have student comments as well. Other
teachers who use this in class may have students writing comments on
paper and turning them in there.
