Blog Portfolio for EL 150

Portfolio 1 -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

This is my first time blogging and my first blog portfolio. This portfolio will cover assigned readings, discussions, and comments that we have completed through this first half of the spring semester (2007).

I never knew about blogging before I started this class. I know understand the process and procedures that are required for making a blog. I think that blogging is very important because it lets every individual participate with classmates and also understand the material much easier through discussion. Blogging has many positive aspects to it and can be a very good in-class discussion starter.

Coverage: (This section contains all of the assigned agenda items for this semester thus far).

• After getting into the routine of blogging, I was able to post my blog entries in an interesting way. It was important to give the blog an interesting name so that other students want to read the entry. This particular blog entry was from the Hamilton, Essential Literary Terms book which used an example of a previous poem we read in class. This term sparked discussions that lead some students to examine the term and then apply it to the particular play that we read. I did not list the piece of work in my blog for that particular reason. I feel that blogging is a very important tool within the classroom. This is because it lets students to actively participate and examine other student’s ideas and thoughts about the assignment.

Additional Information: (Reflection papers throughout the semster thus fur covering the agenda items. These papers make connections with blog entries by other students and helped me to understand the material easier).
