Help! I was just looking through some of the blogs, and I realised that some people haven't blogged for ages. eeep. Blogging is supposed to help students with their written fluency and the ability to think in English, but if they never do it, it isn't going to help them! I'm also worried because blogging is part of the 10% participation mark. It would be such a shame if a student were to fail just because they didn't do their blogs. eeep again. Also, don't forget that students have to make at least two comments per week on other students' blogs. If they don't do that either, they can't get full marks for this project. Woe is me.

Anyway, what I want is for the good bloggers out there to encourage the other students to get blogging. I check the blogs almost everyday, and I know that each week that a student misses blogging is a week they missed out on the opportunity to improve their English. Blogging only works if students do it all the time, or at least the minimum requirements for this assignment. I'm so depressed. Oh well, I guess it is like the English saying "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink"

Thank you to all the bloggers out there who are going to encourage their classmates to hurry up and do some blogs!!!!!

Hey Scott!
I"m sorry to hear some students aren't blogging like they should... tsk tsk. I agree though, that you can't force people to do things, which is too bad. My students woudl be rocket scientists by now!
