Part 2

Final  Blog Rubric Blakeney

My blog post consistently included references to the main text, Roblyer, and additional research using APA style. I consistently included real life examples or references to practice. For me, a challenging aspect of this course was to continually reference the application to my chosen subject area, Sixth Grade English/Language Arts. While I did include this most of the time, I did not always. Professor Gerstein identified the need to do this and I revised blog posts to include this connection (ultimately the purpose of this course) after the initial posting. For this reason, I’ve reduced points in the Content grade. I completed my blog posts early in the week for the most part, but not always, so I reduced points to proficient in this category. I was consistent and thorough in responding to other students’ blogs, always posting to at least two per week. I enjoyed building a more professional, research-based blogging practice.
