5 Week Review

For the uses of blogs part three we were suppose to read through chapters 11-14 and then respond with at least two posts. My first post is here, and my second post is here.

The first was on what the book had to say about scholarly blogs and then the second was what others had to say on the internet about scholarly blogs. It was most interesting to see how commentary on those blogs furthered a topic and displayed both positive and negatives on scholarly blogs.Tulips

If I could do this differently, I would also interview a student who went to the highschool to see if they were more advanced.
