Blogging Info: First, we checked the blog. Be sure that your blog has a link to my page and that your blog is listed on my page on the right side under "Ways of Learning."  Be sure that you posted your first post.

Annotating: Lastly, we discussed annotating for this class. Anytime students are assigned readings in this class, they should assume that they must annotate. Annotating is a skill to help you remember what the reading was about and understand what the author's point is. You do not have to highlight the whole page and fill the margins with notes. Concise, informative notes that help you remember what the reading was about or that help you relate it to class are all you need. Another way to think about annotating is that you are having a conversation with the author and the annotations are your comments. Here is a guide for annotating.
