Perspective Blogs

You all have done a phenomenal job writing about perspective and the need to be aware of perspectives when studying Science. I appreciated your genuine thoughts about how perspective can be altered and why it may be important to do so.

I hope you take time to read each others posts and comment on the interesting ideas you are incorporating into your writing. Blogs are about dialogue within a community of writers.

Great Job

Hi Everyone,

You all did phenomenal jobs creating your blogs. Your first posts about the Enigma Box were well written and specific. You managed to figure out how to edit and publish a new post, not an easy task. So far, your comments to each other have been very professional.

Learning something new is never easy. Sometimes it can be very frustrating. You have all handled the new material in a very appropriate manner. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for a terrific beginning to a great year.

By the way, Jenna has added a post to her blog that details how to embed music onto your blog and much more. If you are interested, check out her page. She is in period 1.
