Topic: How to write a post

If you need to make a new post on your blog go to my account on the top left hand corner, scroll down and click new post. Once you've done that make a title in the top box and your post in the one underneath it. When you finish typing then you must add a picture. You must go to google and copy the image you would like to add. Once you have done that click on your post paste. Your image will appear but you must make it the right size. Click your picture and and there is something that looks like a small picture, click it. Make your picture big then if it is too big continue you to make it smaller until you find the right size. Make sure your picture is in the left side of your post.

Re: How to write a post

When adding images, make sure they "link to the image url".

Two reasons:

First, when someone clicks your image when reading the post, the original big imag will display.

Second, If you also enable the LightBox plugin, magic happens, too.


Also, left or right doesn't matter so much as making sure the layout makes some sense - avoid odd paragraph breaks, and always make sure your writing extends past the last image you've placed or the next post starts to wrap around the image, too. Yuck!

Do it once, just to see what happens: past only an image in your next post, shrink it small and wrap the text. Your previous post might get sucked up and it'll break the layout. Not all "clown pants" do this but many do.

You begin, you end, the rest is middle. 3-5 sub-topics in the middle is fine.

Writing can include a variety or paragraph lengths and number. Variety encouraged. Miniscule posts - discouraged.

What word count would a good, better, best post look like? 300-500+ for grade 9 I figure right now.

Have a look at the "Words: 631   Sentences: 37   Fog: 10.0   Kincaid: 7.3   Flesch: 73 " mumbo jumbo at the top of any post when editing.  Good idea to track that data over time ... maybe in a spreadsheet especially Kincaid.

Here is the big picture:

Students will listen, speak, read, write, view and represent to

• explore thoughts, ideas, feelings and experiences.
• comprehend literature and other texts in oral, print, visual and multimedia forms, and respond personally, critically and creatively.
• manage ideas and information.
• create oral, print, visual and multimedia texts, and enhance the clarity and artistry of communication.
• respect, support and collaborate with others.

My suggestions for 3-5 this and 3-5 that are general descriptions of patterns I notice that are best able to accomplish the above outcomes.

It is not interesting to quibble over the number of sentences, number of words, per se. The rubric you attach to each submission has much more to it than counting letters, words, sentences, or paragraphs. Judging good writing is still a matter of making sense of the meanings you present; the best writing quibbles over subjective and objective details, philosophical truths, symbols and archetypes. The less you write, the more difficult that becomes, paradoxically.
