A student came to class to say she could not login to her Blogger account. She does not have a gmail account and does not want to get one. We tried it in our lab, and I could not figure out how to solve the problem. I brought the problem up in class, and the next day a couple of students said she should login using her email address, a hotmail address. She tried it, and it worked.
In three successive classes I had the students make a creative list which came from our textbook, Writing Processes and Structures: An American Language Text. The lists were things you would hide is someone was coming to visit, reasons for not getting married, and people who have influenced your life. This weekend, I asked the students to write something about one of the lists they made or make another list and write about it.
Still have seven students yet to post though three of them have blogs. It will come.
Berta commented on the lack of pictures. I think you are right, and I hope to do something about that. The students have much more this semester, little that there is so far, then in the past. I will have to borrow my daughter’s camera and take some pictures.
