Hello, everyone! Welcome to the fall semester and to English 1113 section 005 of freshman English at Oklahoma Panhandle State University.
The main objective of this class is for students to practice and improve their writing skills, and to do that, we'll engage ourselves in different kinds of writing activities--just like this class blog.
Each day, there will be two students responsible for blogging. One student will blog what occurred in class, and the other will contribute a journal entry (of sorts). The blog will then be available to all students so they can read what we did in class and what was assigned for the following time we meet.
What to Blog:
A) If you have signed up on the RED list, you will blog a journal entry of your choice. In your blog entry, you need to include the prompt (for example: the most horrible day in my life) and then the entry itself. Journal entries should be no shorter than 200 words--but longer entries would be great. NOTE: Make sure you write your name and last name.
B) If you have signed up on the GREEN list, you need to include the following information in your entry:
a) a detailed summary of what was covered in class that day;
b) a detailed summary of what is assigned for the following time we meet (that is, page number of assignments, etc.);
c) the blogger's name and last name.
Blog entries need to be recorded on the day when they are due. That is, if you are to blog what occurred in class on August 21, your blog entry should be posted sometime during that day--not on August 22 or 23. By then, it would be too late.
HOW TO BLOG:
1. Scroll to the bottom of the page and on the bottom of the page, click on "Post Comment"
2. A box will open wherein you will type your name, your email (if you wish), and your blog entry.
Enjoy your blogging experience!
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL semester.
