Your first PORTFOLIO entry in Blogger

 

Prepare your first entry in Google Docs

 

Why will you keep a blog?

 

You have been given a copy of the Academic Communication course documents

http://acommunication.pbworks.com/w/file/52581142/NAEN%20%20204%20COURSE%20%20DOCUMENTS.doc

 

Here you will find the "Assessment Strategy" explaining how you get your grade.  At the start of the course, when you were given this document, your teacher put this up on the whiteboard and went over it with you.

 

Here it says that 15% of your grade is a "Portfolio" where you "maintain a log book, blog, or diary to evaluate and reflect on the development of their personal speaking skills."

 

You will keep a blog where you will make entries with links to your online accomplishments

 

Develop your ideas for your blog

 

We will use Google Docs to help you create your blog and make your first entry (called a 'post')

 

Your blog needs 

    1. A NICE name for the blog
    2. The Blog URL
    3. A NICE title for your first post, or entry
    4. Some text for the first post

 

Please copy these 4 bullets to a Google Doc

 

Here is an example of what each of these parts does

 

 

Start your NEW blog

 

 

Make your first post, or entry

 

 

If you use the text from the Google Doc which your teacher has corrected,

then you will be able to avoid errors that you would have to repair later
