HOT Blogging

Zawilinski, L. (2009). HOT blogging: A framework for blogging to promote Higher Order Thinking. The Reading Teacher, 62(8), 650-661.

This article outlines a framework for using blogs to engage students with comprehension of content and critical literacy skills. It also goes through the steps for a beginning blogger to get started (teachers are the target beginner), and it lists a variety of resources for different types of blogs and their use within the classroom. I think these resources and the example of HOT blogging could be a useful component to our presentation.
