Welcome to a new school year at Fagerlia!
In this class both you and us teachers will use blogs to share information, curriculum, assignments, and answers. At the end of the year we will host a Blog Awards, awarding the best blog, best layout, the blogger with the most posts etc.
Let’s get started!
The first order of business is for you to create your own blogs. Remember, this is an educational blog, which will be evaluated, so keep it tidy and professional. Use https://www.wordpress.com and choose a free account. When making your account you can choose whether to have a public, private or hidden blog, but no matter which you choose you have to share the link with your teacher.
You will receive assignments to publish on your blogs, and some of these will be graded with grades, others will be graded “approved” / “not approved”. This is a good way to practice and develop your writing skills. Feedback on the blog posts will be given directly to you on Skolearena.
So, get to it! Create your blog, and include links to other public blogs of your classmates, as well as our teacher blog, if you find other relevant sites you are free to link to these as well. You might also include a map so you can see where your visitors are from.
We encourage you to read some of your fellow students blogs – both for inspiration and to support each other. Maybe also leave a comment?
After having created your blog, your first blog assignment will be given by your teacher.
