Welcome to the blog for Jenny Lang's English 300 at the El Dorado Center! Each week you will be expected to post your own blog. These blogs can be related to you and your life (if you feel comfortable sharing) or current news and interests going on in the world or society around you. You can also get extra credit by reading the blogs of other studens and commenting on them.
Once you have established your account, I will save your blog under my account so that you and your fellow classmates can find and read each others blogs. For everytime you read and comment on someone else's blog, you can earn up to 5 extra credit points. Over the course of the semester, you can earn up to 100 points in this way. This is also a great way to encounter other people's thoughts and views and reflect on your own. Blogs are an excellent way of creating interesting dialogues on all sorts of topics in an online environment.
