Things to fix on your blog

Many of you still need to fix some issues on your blogs. Look at this list and then check your blog to make sure you meet the requirements:

1. All class members on your blogroll

2. change “just another wordpress blog” in the tagline of your blog to something else (you do this on the “settings” page)

3. reset your time zone (see previous post)

4. Add your NAME to your about page and your “about” sidebar otherwise I can’t grade your posts.

Getting the correct time zone on your blog

Make sure you change your time setting so I grade you accordingly for on time assignments.

1. Go to your dashboard

2. go to “settings”

3. go to “time zone”

4. set time zone to UTC -8

We have debates scheduled for Mon and Wed next week.

Here is the debate format we will follow in class on MON and WED next week:

Each group then will alternate and provide a total of FOUR points to PROVE their argument.You must use evidence taken from credible sources to prove your points.

You will have 3 minutes per point.

The other side will have 1 minute rebuttal. We will switch back and forth.

1 minute conclusion to wrap up your argument.

Remember you must use CLEAR and CREDIBLE EVIDENCE to support your argument and every member of your group must participate in an equal manner.
