Standards Based Blogging

It’s an idea that just popped into my head… also Siobhan Curious wrote about how she plans to give her (English) students monthly blog grades.  And in the comments, someone suggested having a separate grade for comments.

So maybe I have some list of blogging standards.  Maybe they include things like content standards, as well technology-mastery standards.  Maybe positive community participation is a standard that can be met by commenting on other students blogs, or by writing response posts (and then you’d get the pingback, so it shows up with the comments).

I don’t think I actually want to call them standards.  This is something different.  Maybe.  Don’t know yet.

I had been thinking about having a midterm blog grade, but I like the idea of splitting the semester into thirds, and having a meeting each time for feedback.
