Here is something to think about. I am thinking that we could save ourselves some ink and money by encouraging the Modern Language Association (MLA) to change its required font to Garamond too. Thoughts?
So here begins Spring Break. I am currently working on a few different items for classes (and yes, it is only 7 am on the first day of Spring Break 2014). I will end this break with three days in SoCal at a union conference, but for now, I am sandwiched between my two warm dogs on the sofa, thinking about how to build this blog into an ongoing communication portal. I am also questioning the efficacy of Edmodo now that I am using the new Weebly website, and wondering if this might be a better way to add content to converse about.
Let me know what you think. I am going to email this link to you via your district email, and if you log on and comment at any point during the break, I will kick 5 extra credit points your way.
Comment on the above, and also let me know what you are up to on your break. Remember that you are also supposed to be working on your English content, both class novel and ORP. :)
Take it easy, all, and see you in about 9 days or so. Oh, and as a bonus? You may still earn 5 *extra* Extra Credit points by commenting on the first blog post below, from February.
And one more thing: consider using Wordle.com to create a visual of your poet's work (AmLit 11), or your biography content (HE9), by using the text to highlight recurring words...the one below is made up of five of e. e. cummings's poems.
A place to browse, read, think, and, I hope, respond. Thoughtful comments that bring something to the conversation may earn up to 5 extra credit points. A solid paragraph, with no spelling nor grammar errors will earn the most points. Points may be earned every two weeks. For credit, you may also send me links to news and stories that interest you, and I will review them for possible posting here.
