Blogging Guidelines

<a href=””><img src=”; alt=”” title=”blogginghomework” width=”500″ height=”182″ /></a><strong>

Blogging can be an integral part of our classwork.  This checklist,elaborated by beginning bloggers from the Advanced Writing Course  at will help you stay on top of your blogging.
<strong>Write respectfully:</strong>Human interactions are based on values, such as respect. Anything you write should be:
•    concise,
•    constructive,
•    objective,
•    sincere,
•    in topic, and
•    specific
in order to improve and help each other pursuing our common goal: writing academically in English as a second language.

Posts and comments should be polite, respectful, and encouraging. Feel free to share your own point of view and point out accuracy mistakes in our writing community.
Posts: minimum 75 words
Comments: 25 words with constructive feeback. “I agree with you” is not  enough. Include why you agree and link your agreement to another thought.

<strong>Write accurately:</strong>Write in a correct way. Take care of grammar and mechanics. Grammar Focus: Proofread your posts before you upload. As a future teacher, you do not want any grammar, spelling or vocabulary mistakes in your blog. Anyone anywhere in the world can read them.</td>

TIP: Prewrite your posts and comments in Microsoft Word so you can check your spelling and grammar before writing on the blog.

Vocabulary in Context: After each unit you should use the new vocabulary words from the presentation and the glossary in your posts. This will help you digest new information better.</td>

After each unit you are invited to write a well-developed Reflective Blog Post to discuss the weekly topics covered in class: you may use the reflection questions guide at the end of each unit of your textbook.  If possible, include an appropriate audio/video/media/vodcast/podcast. If you post an image, then provide attribution for your media. See this video from My Fitting Sites made by Jerry Bates for details.</td>

    Hello friends!, I had a terrible mistake in my last mail, see?, “said” for “say”; sorry. It was my twin.
