One time in July and one time in August, you must get
on-line and access The Taming of the Shrew discussion blog through my
http://s.spachman.tripod.com/home.htm. The “blog” is a place where I
can post prompts/ideas/questions for you to react to. You must go to the
blog, find one of the prompts you’d like to respond to, and then write a
response (minimum of a good-sized paragraph) to the prompt. Just click on
the “comments” link below the prompt to see the comments your classmates
have already posted and to get to the “post a comment” button. Type your
name and your comment and then submit it to the blog.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you compose your response in
a Word document first (or at least write it down) and then paste it into the
comment box. The blog sometimes acts all quirky and loses your work
when you’re trying to submit it.
Please also note: The blog will date your posting so
I’ll know when you submitted it. Beware Sunday nights. Many websites shut
down their servers for maintenance on Sunday nights, so you might not be
able to get into the blog to do your comments.
And YES, you can post MORE than twice to the blog.
Don’t have internet at home? Try your local Chicago
Public library. Most have computer banks hooked up to the internet
(although they are notoriously slow).
