Time Flies When You're Having Fun!
So, this semester is pretty much over and it is time for our last blog entry, our third portfolio! This is the part of the semester where I come clean about my feelings. When we were first required to blog, I thought it was one of the weirdest and dumbest things I've ever been required to do. I do have different feelings about it now, though. It gave me the opportunity to express my opinion somewhere, even if not in class. Also, I can bettter express my ideas on paper than through conversation because I get more time to think it through. I found myself enjoying writing blog entries and reading other people's responses. Don't get me wrong, some blog entries were dull and boring, Hamilton mainly, but others were great! I wouldn't be surprised if I continue to blog over the summer- I plan on reading the rest of the Ender's series. So without further ado, my third, AND LAST, portfolio for EL150!
~My Stream of Consciousness is shallow. is my attempt at writing blank verse. It is linked back to the course webpage and was turned in days before the due date.
~She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy...She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy discusses the importance of the refrain.
~Emotionally Disconnected simply discusses Vivian's inability to admit being in pain.
~A fun blog entry! (I do love my exclamation point!) is an interesting blog entry which lets you get inside my mind a little about exclamation points and Charlemagne!
~Just READ IT and you'll see! is just a fun entry! I got words from urbandictionary.com and talked about their usage in ever day speech.
~Clowns and Literature Don't Mix! inspired discussion about Richard Wright, interrupting yourself in writing and clowns. Three people had things to say.
~In Good Company is just a short entry that attracted a lot of attention. The secret to getting responses, writing short entries.
~I DO like green eggs and ham! descibes my love of the book and sparked a lot of conversation!
~Three Cheers for MLA Works Cited Lists!-The purpose of this entry was to assist myself and my peers with writing our final papers, as a sort of reference. Even though I only received two comments on it, I would like for my peers to be aware of at least the fact that the back of Hamilton tells you how to write a works cited list.
~Ender's torture will never end! showcases some of my feelings about the book. I go beyond the one required agenda item and actually wrote two. I made an interesting observation in this entry.
~Ender's Ugly Transformation sparked a lot of thought and actually fits into my discussion section because I put a lot of time and effort into developing a good argument
~Guilty as Charged struck a chord with its readers because they could relate. I specifically called out my usage of the phrase, "It is clear..." because I use it ALL THE TIME! I'm going to avoid it now, though.
~Ender's Ugly Transformation sparked a lot of thought amongst my readers and actually inspired one of my peers, Erica Gearhart to write The End of Ender in response to my opinion that Ender became a killer.
~Angelica's entry really made me think about the play W;t and Edson's use of the flashback to showcase Vivian's personality.
(Sorry about the different fonts and colors of fonts but I don't know how to change it!)
