Blogging community for Kayley Thomas's ENC 1101 classes
Welcome to the blogging community for University of Florida ENC 1101 sections taught by Kayley Thomas.

This community will be used to facilitate discussion in and outside of class regarding issues related to our course. Prompts will be posted three times per week; each student is required to respond to one prompt per week.

Prompts will be posted Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The Monday prompt must be responded to by midnight Tuesday evening; the Wednesday prompt must be responded to by midnight Thursday evening; and the Friday prompt must be responded to by midnight Sunday evening. We will often discuss the prompt and your responses in class.

Express yourself freely but with respect. Formal writing isn't required, but do avoid text message-style writing. You can respond with anything from 2 or 3 sentences to a paragraph (or more, if you so choose). Apply things you've learned in class or from the textbook whenever possible; also bring in outside knowledge and experience if it relates to the topic. Don't tell me what you think I want to hear; give me your honest opinions, observations, and arguments. At the same time, take your responses seriously; I will be reading them.

Later in the semester you will post entries in your own blogs; we will discuss this in more detail at that time.

If you have any questions, please email Kayley at kjthomas@ufl.edu
