Blogging is an important part of the english class
Blogging is not an important part of the english class. Blogging is a great way to share thoughts and ideas in an open and productive manner but is not an important part of english class because one big reason is that often, seeing that blogging is currently optional and not homework, kids just don't have time to do things like blog. At this age kids take part in a massive amount of activities during the week and during the weekend. They also often get very little sleep, which causes them to try and catch up on their sleep during the weekend. Homework is also a big interference in the time kids would have to blog because after coming home late from an activity and having over an hour of work to do, blogging is just not possible. There are other reasons that play along as well, things such as peer pressure may come into play and the thoughts that their ideas are stupid wander through the mind and causes children to divert from posting blogs. It has always been said that the classroom is open to all ideas and no one's ideas will be made fun of. But these statements are not true, because no one can be assured that their bad blog post will not be made fun of by other kids in the class. Because no matter how many times the teacher says that inside the classroom, things are a lot different outside that door. Teachers can never control the class outside the classroom and that can inflict fear in a child, and will push them farther and farther away from blogging. These are just two of the many reasons that blogging is not seen as an important and practical part of english class.
