Dear Students in ENGL119 Sections 001 and 002,
The first thing you should know is that this site is not publicized, and none of us should use tags on this site. If you don’t know what a tag is, then no problem.
Why am I telling you this? To let you know that this site is all but private. While a visitor may drop by, it’s highly unlikely in the millions of blogs on the web. However, the site is not 100% private so do not ever share your student number or other info. You will choose a username and that will be how we know you. I will invite you to be an author via WordPress, but you will not have editing privileges. Please check your UW email on or before May 16th.
You can add video, audio, images and other media to communicate what you want to say. Don’t be shy! I will be on our course site often. Please feel free to post and comment more often. Any extra posts or comments will count toward your participation grade, depending on their depth and engagement with the post. You are expected to follow UW Policy 33 at all times (that’s the ethics policy).
I look forward to reading your work!
