Getting started

So, it's time for you to get you started. This blog will be an important, integral part of the course, and you will be using it throughout the year to catch up on missed assignments, get access to extra reading and interesting articles, and to complete certain homework assignments.

Participating in the blog is mandatory, and so it is important that you learn how to use it. Now, I am not the most sophisticated of computer users, so if you are having problems, or can think of better ways that this blog could be used to help you enjoy Social Studies, then just let me know. In the meantime, you will need a google user name to get started because you will complete your homework assignments by posting comments, insights, and interesting questions.

If you get stuck, or you can't use the blog at home, do not be afraid to ask for help - you are always welcome to use the library computer on your own time, in order to complete your assignments.

How To Post...

Posting a comment is easy, but you will need a google account to do this. At the end of each post there will be a link that shows the number of comments (ex. 0 comments). Click on this link, and you will be given a space to write a response. Please spellcheck your response, and be sure that your comment is respectful.

At the bottom of your comment it will say "Comment as" - select Google Account. Then if you do not have a gmail/igoogle page/blog - you will have to create a new google account. Select a user name, and enter in your email address. Then, you can preview your post to see what it looks like beforehand, and then you're done!

ASSIGNMENT #1

1. Post a comment below, so that you can practice using the blog. No message is necessary, just make sure you leave your first and last name so that I can tell which students have posted.

If you are unsure about how to do this please watch this educational video.....
