Commenting on Blog Posts

  1. 1. How do we Comment on Blog Posts?<br />Special thanks to these blogs for providing great information about commenting:<br />yollisclassblog.blogspot.com<br />sfsbiology.edublogs.org/how-to-post<br />huzzah.edublogs.org/commenting-guidelines<br />
  2. 2. Commenting Must-Dos<br />Read the post – twice!<br />Make sure you understand what the post is about and think about what your response will be before you do any typing!<br />Read the other comments<br />You may want to comment on them as well as the post. But, do not say something like: I agree with everything he said. That is not a comment.<br />Remember the Grandmother Rule<br />Don’t write anything that your grandmother wouldn’t be proud of you for. Be caring and principled when commenting on posts from other people. It’s okay to disagree, but do so as if you were talking to your grandmother (or your teacher).<br />Remember Digital Privacy<br />We only use our usernames online and refer to others with their usernames as well. No personal details of any kind at all.<br />Remember to PEE<br />In order for your comment to be worthwhile , you have to make a point and then support it with evidence, examples and/or an explanation<br />Draft your comment elsewhere<br />It’s always a good idea to draft your comment in Google Docs or Word and then paste it in. That way, if you don’t finish, you can save it and continue later.<br />
  3. 3. My (Very Strong)Suggestions<br />Use proper English. A comment is not a text message.<br />Write at least 3-5 sentences. You can write more.<br />Check back after you’ve commented to carry on with the conversation.<br />Remember to be logged in when you comment.<br />Think before you write. Then think again before you hit ‘submit’!<br />
  4. 4. Some Response Prompts:<br />This made me think about…<br />I wonder why…<br />Your writing made me form an opinion about…<br />This post is relevant because…<br />Your writing made me think that we should…<br />I wish I understood why…<br />This is important because…<br />Another thing to consider is…<br />I can relate to this…<br />I don’t understand…<br />I was reminded that…<br />I found myself wondering…<br />Thanks to: sfsbiology.edublogs.org/how-to-post/<br />
