Face it, you will be taking more and more classes online and be expected to know your stuff when you answer an instructor’s question. This answer must (a) purposely address the question and (b) sound smart. You won’t go away with a quicky Snapchat answer as it stays there forever and will require more from you than merely clicking a thumbs-up like button.
Starting in November, you must post four comments (@ least two sentences) each month. But before we get to the content, let’s make sure you know the process of getting your comment posted to a blog.
1. Find the icon
Most comment icons are at the top of the article under the title and to the right of the date it was published. Ours will look like this:
2. Read & write
Typically, bloggers post a question at the end of their article, but you will want to actually read the thing as it will help you answer the question. You will need to write two sentences. Remember your audience etiquette and comment properly, yet fully. The example below is merely the beginning of a two-sentence response and was edited for space. We can excuse one typo/spelling error, but any more and your comment won’t be approved. If you are
pronto promo prone to making typos, write it out first in a notes app prior to posting.
3. Who are you?
You need to sign in as your first name and first letter of your last name and period number: BillyWperiod1 or SallyBperiod6 or AdrianSperiod3. You must follow this formula of writing your first name, initial of last name, period/class number dash & year or you can’t get credit. See below. The best thing is that if you use the same electronic device to write your comments, it will remember who you are. Isn’t technology grand?
4. Email notifications
If you click on “notify me of new posts via email,” you will always know when there’s a new article to post your comment. And no spam mail from me, pinky promise!
5. Proof & post
Click on “Post Comment” and you are done! Your comment will be approved ASAP.
Get started now!
There’s no need to wait until the end of September to start posting your comments. Typically there are two posts a week, so there should be plenty from which to choose. Don’t wait until the last minute, though, as comments close 20 days after they are published. I will be sure to remind you when a new article is published, but if you click on “notify me of new posts via email,” you will know all the more quickly!
Also, if you find any typos, for heaven’s sakes, please let me know! The first one to notify me receives one theatre hour. Error only count generated from nshstheatre.com. We won’t give credit for finding student typos!
So: leave us your spin by clicking on the little comment icon at the top and answer this question:
What is an example of collaboration you have seen or experienced personally in school NOT in our Theatre Arts class?
Because we are an educational-type website, all comments must be approved, so be sure to mind your theatre etiquette.
