Publishing Student Writng on the Internet

I think that publishing student work on the internet is a good idea. This would give students an authentic reason to write. It is also an adventure to see what they have written posted on an internet site. Publishing also gives the students a chance to think about their audience and their purpose for writing. The internet expands the audience for their work. They can also share their writing with friends and family who live all over the world. There are many way that students can publish writing on the internet. They can write essays, responses to literature,and multimedia presentations. The internet is a new component to literacy that has many uses that we don't even know yet. Students need to become familiar with how to use it.

I totally agree with you, not to mention that it allows for students to receive feedback on their writing!
