Some Advice on Comments

The next step in the project is to find your network or learners, add them to your Google Reader account, and to read their blogs and comment on them.

Commenting will be one of the most important ways you interact and learn in the Teen Life Project. It's always nice to receive nothing but compliments, but that's not our goal here. Your comments should add to the idea being developed. They should expand the understanding of the issue for you and the person you are writing to.

Yes, your comments are going to require some brain power.

Here is what your comments have to do:

Adding to the Conversaton
Did you:

  • Read and reply to the original post?
  • Add a new idea to the conversation, pointing to a new resource or
    another blogger?
  • Ask a new question that could further the conversation in productive ways?

Hey Mr. Hide's Class!

Just wanted you to know that I love your blog and plan to introduce it to my students tomorrow....we study Columbia in class and are kind of fascinated by South America.

If you're interested, check out our blog:
