ENG 4U 2012: All About Blogging

For the opening minutes of this class, I will provide you with a quick overview of WordPress. You can use any method you wish to track important concepts; you might want to use your phone to take snapshots of the information on the screen.

Next, we will take a look at one student’s response to the reading from Monday. As we do this, we need to discuss some basic guidelines for posting comments: how can we provide useful and constructive feedback to the work of others?

Finally, I will introduce your next blog post to you. This post needs to be 250-300 words, and should be  completed by Tuesday. Here is the link.

  1. Hey Mr. Pedrech,
    For this fiction piece are we allowed to write it in actual story format? With our characters actually saying sentences? Or only what they are thinking while doing this activity, or what they are doing?

      Amber, the basic requirements are that you use a process to organize your work, and that you have a character you know well complete this process. Once you meet these requirements, you have the freedom to choose those elements that will make the narrative work.
      It might be helpful to think of the task this way: imagine that you are writing a novel featuring the character of your choice. At one point in the novel (for example, page 34) the character completes the process you’ve chosen. As the author, it is up to you decide if the character will speak, maintain an inner dialogue, or simple go about the tasks.
      This is exactly the sort of thing professional writers do to make their work seem more real and authentic.

      Hope this helps!
