Blogging Guide


One of the activities we will be doing this year is working on a 5th grade blog. This blog will include writing about things we do in computer class and other topics.

Blogging Etiquette

  1. Make sure to proof and edit before you post (check spelling, capitalization, and punctuation).
  2. Use ACADEMIC language and spelling:
      • you not u
      • are not r
      • you're or your not ur
      • I not i
  3. When responding to someone else's work , be sure the comments are HIGH QUALITY and RESPECTFUL. No one word comments.
  4. This is an ACADEMIC project. Do not use the blog for social conversations.
  5. Only post pictures if it part of an assignment (pictures take up a lot of server space).

Each blogging assignment (new posts and comments) will be graded based on the following rubric:
E
