Blogging Guidelines

Your summative blog posts should include three photographs (at least one of your work) and nine to ten sentences that analyze your ceramic artwork and address the assigned questions. “Micro posts” or weekly updates might only be a title and images of work in progress.

Your published posts and comments are part of your schoolwork. Your words and images are held to classroom, school and district rules just as what you might write/draw in your classroom notebook or on a post it note comment.

Never include last names, email addresses, telephone numbers, street addresses or any other personally identifiable information about yourself or those you mention in your posts or comments. If a picture includes a person beside yourself, ask for and receive their permission before publishing.

Use capital letters following the conventions of our written language, first letter of each sentence, proper nouns, the pronoun I. Proofread, check your spelling and punctuation. Center your artwork in the picture frame, be sure it is well lit and in focus. Create a title for each blog post.

  • Compose at least 2 – 5 sentences.

  • Be respectful to author and others who are posting comments.
  • Avoid texting shortcuts “U” and “R” and limit use of emoticons.

    Trescott S. and Patrick T. gave a lot of information about their bowls. I’d say they did pretty well, explained in great detail, and described how they had made their form. I relate to this because I give in good detail of how my bowls are made, any mistakes i’ve made in the process, and what I did to make the bowls better. What do you others think?
