How do you give reluctant students a voice?

All students are individuals and learn and express themselves in different ways.

If you have been in the classroom, whether as a student or a teacher, you know that there are some students (like me) that cannot stop participating and some students that will only participate if there is no other choice.

In the article “Giving Reluctant Students a Voice” they suggest using blogs to allow students that normally do not participate in classroom discussions to still have a voice. Using a blog allows students that need more time to process information and/or just don’t like to talk in front of a large group an outlet to share their valuable knowledge and opinions.

Another bonus with using blogs in the classroom is that you can get insights and have conversations with people around the world without leaving your classroom.

What are some ways you use blogs? What are some ways you give your reluctant students a voice?
