    Once they've finished their story - having gone through the draft, edit, re-crafting process - they then publish it to their blog. I use Kidblog.org as our blogging platform. Each student has the freedom to post their own stories and posts as well as the ones we do as a class. Some of these are then posted to our class blog.

    When they write in their book, conferencing has to be done at school with both the student and me present. When they go away from the conference they have to remember what I’ve said - something quite difficult for many to do. They then have to work out how to do their re-crafting, and once that’s done, they have to publish to their blog (which is where their writing often goes).
    When they write their story in a document conferencing can take place anywhere - I often read and comment in my own time - as do many of my students. I write my comments down and they will comment back or ask questions to clarify my meaning. Sometimes we conference at the same time and my students feel very empowered working together with me even though we may be quite a distance apart. The students don’t have to remember what I’ve said - it’s there for them to read.

What a fantastic dilemma to be in - there are so many different experiences our students can have, especially to support writing.
    These then are my conclusions - thus far:
    1. Writing has to have a purpose
    2. Writing doesn't always mean putting pen to paper
    3. Writing is a personal experience
    4. Writing can be collaborative
    5. We need to provide our students a range of choices/media to write in
    My journey into the unknown - the 'here-be-dragons' territory - opened up more questions than were answered. However, I hope that what you've read here has provoked your thinking about writing in your classroom.
