January 18*

JOURNAL TOPIC: (today's tunes: "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard" by Paul Simon; "Rock & Roll High School" by The Ramones; "My Old School" by Steely Dan)

What's the difference between learning about a book in school and learning about a book on your own?  Now that you have some choices in how you learn and express what you know, how do you think we should study a novel together and compare it with the books you read on your own?

1. Journal
2. Essay

1. Read your literature analysis book
2. Add a "Follow by Email" gadget to your blog
3. Recruit 20 students from the two RHS course sections to follow your blog


  1. Can you please post instructions to how to set up hw # 2 please?

    1. Hi Eli,
      It's easy: 1) go to blogger dashboard and select your course blog; 2) go to "Layout" page; 3) find the "Add a Gadget" link;
      3) In the Gadget dialogue box, click the blue + sign next to "Follow by Email" ; and 4) click Save. View your blog to make sure the feature shows up, and...voila! You're done.

    2. Thankyou and all I do now is put my email into another students blog where it says follow by email?
