Hi Class! It is time to outline the expectations for our blog when posting and replying. This is an academic activity, therefore use your best writing skills. Avoid slang, jargon and abbreviations used when chatting or sending text messages to your friends. I will suggest corrections to students when improvements are needed. Often I will reply to a post with ‘Quick Fix:” to explain the error and the remedy.
Aside from the learning opportunities related to writing, grammar and spelling, blogging is a tremendous communication tool. Students will not simply respond to questions from the teacher, students will be expected to reply to the posts from classmates.
