Introduction icebreaker: When entering the classroom, students will each take a piece of paper, a marker, and a piece of Starburst candy. Each student will make a nametag. Then, students will introduce themselves and, depending on the color of the piece of candy they have selected, they will answer the following questions:
Write about your personal experience in using the internet (200 words).
You should create a new thread in the discussion and post your answer. The assignment is worth 50 points and grading will be based on the writing rubric in the Week 1 folder. The reason I set up the homework in this way is because I want you to see what other people write about and provide comments to each other. You will be surprised to know some interesting things. The homework is due on Sep 14, Sun, 11:59pm.
