Students at Byker Primary School in Newcastle, England, are working to improve their English-language skills by maintaining a schoolwide blog. Writing for the blog has helped the students -- all of whom are learning English as a second language -- keep in touch with family and friends, but educators say the blog has been viewed worldwide, including by author Berlie Doherty, who read the students' reviews of her book. "The children get a real buzz from knowing their work is being seen around the world and they are always thrilled when they get a comment on their work," said deputy head teacher John Newton.
