1. The teaching context and profile of students

 

2. The how and why of the blogs (blog 1 - blog 2)

 

3. How the writing process was addressed for each assignment:

  • PRE-WRITING:

- use of teasers - writing 1

 

- use of teasers - writing 2

 

- posts with informal comments on the topic - writing 2

 

 

  • DRAFTING AND REVISING:

- possibility of writing online or not

 

- scaffolding of peer revision in a demonstration given to the students by class teacher (presenter 1) and researcher (presenter 2) - Desperate Housewives
