I’m sorry that I am not in class today. However, you know the work that needs to be done for independent reading and I am looking forward to seeing/reading your creations. Last week we discussed necessary tweaks and applauded our success. Today I expect you to raise the level of thinking and publishing as you create your second book mark. Read directions carefully. If you finish your mark, please publish your reflection, using the directions below. Your speed-research sheet is due in class tomorrow.
Be awesome today. I’ll see you tomorrow.
BOOK MARK #2
- Create a new blog post for your book mark. Create an original title for the post. Create original tags. Use parent category: CyberJournal and sub category: Bookmark. Also use parent category: Independent Reading and sub category: title of your book. Use hyperlinks when appropriate.
- Introduce your book mark to your reader:
- First, introduce your book and author. (Remember titles are italicized.) Why did you choose the book initially and what is your impression of it so far? How have you progressed in your reading since your last book mark.
- Second, introduce your book mark. What did you create? Why did you choose to create it? How did you create it? Explain how the specific details of the book mark relate to specific details in the novel.
- Third, post your book mark. You can do this using HTML (as we have with Goodreads reviews), using hyperlink, using an image, using copy/paste.
- Finally, explain how creating the book mark helped you look at your book, reading in general, or language in general in a new way. (If you’ve done your best work here, there should be something new that you know or understand.)
- Submit your post.
