Week 5 Blogs
Many of you have been asking what the topic of your weekly blogs are this week, so here it is. One of your blogs is a freebie, in other words pick a topic of your choice. The second blog of the week is the following.
Find an interesting, crazy, weird, absurd, off the wall photo on the net (make sure it isn't anything that shouldn't be on a school computer). From here, I'd like you to examine the photo, be creative and come up with an introduction and a conclusion for that photo. In other words, imagine you were to write a creative story with that photo as your focus. Instead of writing the whole story out, I only want to see the introductory paragraph and the concluding paragraph. No middle, no body, no juice, no hamburger, just the buns. :)
So, there you have it, your two blogs for the week, due on Sunday the fifth.
I have been receiving many blogs recently, that are in direct violation of school plagiarism policies, a.k.a. they are being copied from somewhere. Remember, a blog is basically an online journal of YOUR writing, no one else. So, if you want to use a quote from a newspaper article for example, then you must cite that specific work. Do not, and I mean DO NOT write a blog using someone else's thoughts or words. It isn't fair to them and it most certainly isn't fair to you.
If you don't see your blog published within 72 hours, chances are that there was something wrong with it. All you have to do is go back to your blog in your articles, and see the teacher comments beside it. Chances are I left you a short message to let you know what was up.
Many of you are doing a great job with your blogs, however there are still a few that do not realize the implications that your blog work will have on your overall Language Arts grade. If you're not sure, please see me and I will go over it with you again.
Switching gears, great job on the cross country run last week. One of the three classes that I teach has won the pizza party; congratulations and I'll be talking to you guys soon.
Enjoy your week, and Happy New Year to everyone celebrating Rosh Hashanah!
