Writing Reflection (100 words)
This week's writing reflection is going to be a bit different. 

(1) I would like you to visit 3 classmates blogs, and leave meaningful and significant comments that encourage a discussion.  When you leave a comment, I want you to cut and copy the page specific blog address/URL and post it in your blog as part of your Writing Reflection. 

(2) I also want you to discuss how the process of commenting went:

  • Where did you leave comments? Why did you select that post to comment on? 
  • What are the characteristics of a "good" comment? 
  • What are the characterisitcs of a "bad" comment?
  • What are some benefits to commenting on other people's blogs? 
  • What are the benefits to receiving comments on your blog?

So this week's Writing Reflection would look like this:
Weekly Reflection #6
Comment #1
 Comment #2
 Comment #3
The first comment I posted was on Ryan's blog.  The reason why I posted a comment is because his discussion of superheroes got my really thinking.  Why do we as a society have superheroes, and what do they reflect about our values?  Even more exciting, what super power would you have if you were a superhero? Why? I think that by commenting on Ryna's blog, we can take a relatively every day topic like superheroes, and start to think about how society works and why . . .
