Summary: This study looks at improvements in grade 5 students' writing through the use of blogs. The students used blogs to plan and draft their narratives and to comment on their peers' narratives. Teachers incorporated scaffolded teacher questions and peer revision within the blog format in order to help students improve. The blogs were fun for the students and provided them with an authentic writing format, although there was no statistically significant growth in the students narrative writing ability in terms of content generation. However, the short time frame of the study may have been an adverse factor in terms of output.
