Welcome 2008/2009 Student Bloggers

Hello everyone. Some of you have asked about the blogging opportunities in class and what it entails. For now the blog is extra credit, thus optional for you to particpate in. Posts do not need to be long and drawn out, short and to the point will suffice.

Requirements are as follows: edit your work and take pride in your writing, anyone on the Internet can view your creation; do not write inappropriate posts, they will be deleted and you will lose your privileges; and finally, enjoy the project!

Open letter to my students about getting started

Hello everyone. This is the site we will be using for blogging. Class discussions have been good, so this is the next step…putting your thoughts out for a larger number of people to see. I appreciate you volunteering for this project. There are no wrong opinions if you base them on facts. Always support your ideas with examples, people may disagree with you, but they can never prove you wrong. The facts are your allies. Remember that anyone in the world can read what you right, so proofread your work. More importantly, be yourselves, you have great ideas and you express them well. This is your forum, I hope you enjoy the experience and learn something from it.

Sincerely,

Mr. Sal
