Blog Entry: Do You Punctuate Text Messages!?
The reason that I choose this particular bog entry is because it sparked a lot of discussion and also made the class discussion very interesting. The reading was from the text entitled, "Truss, Eats, Shoots, and Leaves" which many of the students found interesting and worth reading for the many facts that were presented. In addition to this, Lorin was able to present some interesting facts about when she was in Britain and this gave the class come information about another country. Overall, this blog entry was the most interesting of mine and was a great addition to the classroom.
