Today's Class

Each student is responsible for improving the first blog they made according to the blog rubric which can be found on this blog.

In addition to that each student needs to start a new blog for a project according to the standards outlined in our blog rubric.

Please don't forget programs such as:

Google AdSense
Picasa Web Albums
Other Gadgets
and also changing the columns on the blog.

Next week will be the last class and as such each block 6 blogger will be graded according to the rubric which can be found near the top left corner of this blog.

For those who have not been keeping their blog, please spend some time to edit and improve your blog.
