Blog-Posts as Writing Assignments, Part Two.
Within the next fews days, all the seniors will be publishing a second blog-post about their summer experiences. Their first posts were entitled "Snapshots of My Summer," and they were to describe some highlights of their vacation. In this second post, entitled "My Summer of [X]," they are to reflect on their summer more deeply, think about it again, perhaps from a different perspective, and identify a theme, a big idea that dominated their vacation. This can be difficult! They were to model their posts after my first and second posts. Let them know if (or how well) they succeeded in a comment or two!
