On the 19th of Jan Koshy presented his case which was facilitated by Suchi.

His main contention was , taking into account the fact that he could spend the same amount of time on both students,how could he equalise the learning of writing skills to minimise the negative effects of student variability.

I thought it was a very interesting question and very familiar to most of us since we also share the same teaching space.

One possible suggestion which I thought of was to render constant and immediate feedback to the students in question after they posted their blog entry.This close and frequent monitering of student work will help both parties in question.The students get to improve their writing and the teacher gets an idea if his/her instructions is being interpreted correctly by the student.
