Quad Blogging is Awesome!

Posted by on March 28, 2012

On February 27, we started Quad blogging. What is Quad blogging you ask? Quad blogging is where you collaborate with three other classes that have blogs. We collaborated with Switzerland, Thailand, and the Czech Republic. It was a great success! I think it taught everybody a lot about there writing like what there strengths were and what they need to improve on.

The only thing I didn’t like is the commenting and blogging rubric. I don’t think that you should be graded on what you write. One of the things I did like about Quad blogging was that we were collaborating with people all around the world, and it was kind of cool to see what they had to say.

My writing has improved a lot because of Quad blogging. At the beginning of the year, I was writing about five or six sentences per post. Now I am writing about two paragraphs. I also improved on the words I was using in my posts. Before, I was using simple and jading words like good and ugly. Now, I am using fancy and colorful words like delightful and revolting. The Quad blogging was an enjoyable experience for me. I was delighted at getting all those comments! I might want to do Quad blogging in the future. So that was my experience with Quad blogging!

    Elior,
    I enjoyed reading your reflections about Quad Blogging. I’m glad you spoke your mind and shared your views about the grading. Honestly, we did more of an “assessment” of your writing rather than a “grade”. We wanted to see how your writing would compare from before the quad blogging to after the quad blogging. I do agree that your writing has improved, and I truly believe that using the RUBRIC and the initial assessment helped to show you HOW to improve. Great post and keep up the great writing.
