All Classes

Hey everyone!

Thanks for all your great comments on our blog. I've enjoyed reading what you have to say. As you well know school starts on Monday, so we really don't have time to for any more entries until after the first week of school (I'm sure you're heartbroken!).  Please make sure, however, that you have at least two entries before you come to school on Monday. When you're done, check skyward and make sure you received points for your entries.  If you encountered any problems, we can take care of that when we meet on Monday.  I look forward to meeting all of you. I have a good feeling it's going to be an awesome year!

Hey everyone!

Here's the next article for reading, reflection, and discussion. Even if you're not a baseball fan, there's some controversy going on here. As you read, think about the moral issues being discussed.  Where do you stand? Remember, all your entries will be due on the first day of school in August.  I will be checking your entries before then and assigning points for each one. There will be at least one, maybe two more before we're done, so make sure you get them all.  See you in August!

Hey everyone!  Me again.  I realize there has been some confusion about the blogging assignment, and I must apologize, because I didn't make things quite clear.  All your entries are not actually due until school begins in August. Originally I wanted to have you all post your comments for individual articles one at a time, but that's not what the instructions indicated on the assignment sheet you got at the end of the year. I also realize it's summer, and many of you will procrastinate, but hey, join the club.  We have jackets!  So far you are doing an awesome job at blogging.  I love it when you comment on each other's posts.  It really builds a community of writers which will be our main focus as the new year begins.  Keep up the good work, and I will post the next article shortly.

Hey everyone!

Here is the first article for which you must blog.  Excellent advice for those of you planning on continuing your education beyond high school (and you'd better!) Read the article, and respond to the questions that follow. Remember, you are to create a conversation with your classmates.  Respond to each other in writing. Ask questions, seek advice, give opinions.  Overall, get comfortable responding to the world around you in writing.  We are going to be doing an awful lot of it next fall.

Create a  gmail account if you haven't already.  This will make your life much easier for later assignments when we meet in August. Gmail or not, put your name after each entry so I know who you are. Your first entry will be due June 21st no later than midnight. If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at jimmyo1220@gmail.com. Otherwise, good luck and happy blogging!
