I am very excited to announce that our class will be participating in the Student Blogging Challenge for the next few weeks! We will be writing stories and posting them online as well as commenting on stories other people post from around the world. I hope that the class will not only be excited to write the stories but also start thinking about how to improve their writing and make constructive comments to others.
Our first assignment is homework tonight. Each student brought home an index card. I am asking that he or she write a paragraph introducing themselves to the world. The post should their first name, where they live (city, state and county)and at least two interesting things about them. It should be a minimum of 4 sentences and a maximum of 10. Tomorrow we will type and post them. I will share more information about where to read the posts when they are ready to go. Below you will see the example I wrote for the class today.
