I might have to try this 

Via Newmark's Door, I found this site of a professor who is having his principles of economics students blog. The quality of the writing should give outsiders some feel for the difficulties we have with student writing, but I think this is a great idea for getting students to look at alternative news sources and to think about economics.

I have a group of seniors writing senior research papers this fall (here's the old syllabus). I might have to add blogging to their workload.
