It's Blog Time!!!! FHS ENGLISH iii

Question 1: What is a blog?

Regularly updated website

Typically run by individual or small group (by YOU)

Written informally or conversationally

Keeps track of written thoughts, ideas, etc.

Why, of all things, are we going to start a blog?

A blog allows you a place to put thoughts, opinions

Allows you to be you. Allows you to express yourself

Helps practice fluency and ability to communicate

Keeps track of written/tech projects

Allows us to see our improvement - or how we've changed

Some colleges offer scholarships just for blogging!

What are we going to blog about?

That depends almost entirely on you!

I'll provide prompts at the beginning... but these will soon become optional

How long will we blog in this class?

You will be required to write one blog post a week.

Time will be allotted on Monday to write - the blog must be completed by friday (if absent)

Okay... But how will it be graded?

2 Assignments will be graded while you are blogging
