Be Responsible

  • Use proper English. Do not use text language or shortcuts.
  • Always check your post for spelling and grammar errors before publishing.
  • This is a public space – you should be proud of everything that you post.
  • Complete all assignments on time.

Be Respectful

  • Comment kindly. Even if you are going to critique someone’s post, include at least two positives before you post a criticism.
  • Do not write about anyone without their permission.
  • Do not post pictures of anyone without permission.
  • Give credit to sources by posting a link to the source where you got the information. Make sure the link is appropriate for school!
  • Respect other opinions.

Be Safe

  • Do not post any personal information on the internet.
  • Use only your first name and last initial.
  • Do not post a link to an outside source unless you know that the contents are safe and appropriate for school

Weekly Assignments


  1. Free Choice – Choose one topic each week to write about and publish on your blog. You can find a list of blog topics by clicking here. Each post should be a minimum of one paragraph, but remember that your classmates will be reading and responding to your posts.
  2. Signpost Journal – Choose one signpost entry from your journal to share with your peers. Make sure to include the book, page number, a description of the signpost, and how what you read helped your understanding of a theme or character from the book.
  3. Peer Response – As a community of learners, you can help each other by commenting on blogs to provide constructive feedback, ask questions, and make connections.

  2. Hi! I’m trying to follow the instructions on the student blogging challenge, but need a little help. So part of it is we need to have 5 blogs links of our favorite blogs. I want to add some links, but don’t know if they would allow. Do I even need to ask permission? If I do need to ask permission, how would I do so? Help!
