2. What are two things you learned you didn't know about blogging, posted below by 5 pm Wed. Jan. 13
3. What have you decided for a title for your blog?
4. Do you have a separate gmail account yet?
5. Once that is set up and you have a blog, have your blog become a follower of this blog, and Coffee with Clark.
1. Faithful attendance. Grade will drop one level for each two absences after the first two. You may not make up missed in class writing and take a 0. If you miss more than 6 class sessions, you will flunk. NO LATE WORK. Any late work will earn a “0.”
2. Be on time to class. Three times late equals an absence. If you’re more than 15 minutes late, it counts as an absence.
3. Design and creation of a blog.
4. The ability to write complete, grammatically correct, sentences.
5. Weekly postings on the blog, including class notes, and speaker stories.
6. Note: you must post every week, starting with week three, deadline end of class Thursdays. If you miss a week, you lose points for that week.—in other words, you can’t make those points up (at least 15) (Hint—in the past, students with the most posts get higher grades than those with minimal or insufficient ones).
7. At least 15 blog posts of original content.
8. Follow BlogblogUCO, class blog. http://blogblogUCO.blogspot.com There will be weekly assignments on this blog, with deadlines. Missed deadlines mean a 0 for the assignment.
9. Following a professional blog in your area, with blog report, presentation.
10. 500-word essay on blogs in today’s world.
11. Note: Your blog must contain original writing. If it is a photography blog, you must have words with every photo, and the blog must have more than captions.
