Abstract

In the past two decades, technology has changed the instruction of literacy in the classroom. The literature reviewed in this capstone project states that students need instruction with new skill sets such as working with digital literacies, 21st century skills, and self-directed learning. The research showed that blogging as a digital literacy tool provides students with the opportunity to work with these skill sets. This capstone project used the research to provide a blogging curriculum to support the question, How can a reader response blogging curriculum guide support digital literacy and 21st century skills with 2nd grade students? This curriculum provides a how-to approach to setting up a classroom blog and implementation during a reading unit on characters in a series.
