The goal this week is to make sure you have finished reading Frankenstein and started reading your chosen auto/biography/memoir.  If you have yet to email me a selfie or a functional blog link, make that your first order of business in today’s class (Apr 3/4).

Otherwise, proceed with the reading that fits your particular circumstances. The first blog post will be due Monday, April 10–whether your class meets that day or not.  Between then and now, review several introductory posts from last year’s seniors–to get a sense of what this first post is meant to do.  They are available on the Student Blogs page of this course blog.  Identify a range of posts, so that you know what strong and not-so-strong examples look like.  Infer the several criteria produced by your review.

Once you have a draft of your first post (200-400 words), ask a classmate or two for feedback before you publish it on your blog.  We will use class time at the start of next week to read and comment on each other’s first published posts.
