I've just introduced my ESL students to blogs via our class Ning. Anyway it's got me thinking about a few things. Should I correct all their writing? My students are refugees and migrants learning English and I don't want to discourage them in anyway. I want them to feel free to get their ideas down and to feel confident doing so.
Should I respond modelling correct spelling and grammar?
Should they write in Word first and do a spell check etc?
What do you do with your students? How do you work with blogs? I'd be grateful for any ideas/suggestions.
