Research Journal Assignment #12

Post in Your Blog:

Post three times  in your blog (research journal), using the numbers, letters, and phrases in bold as the titles of your respective posts:

RJA #12a: Progress ReportReport on the progress you have made on your argumentative paper.  The report should include at least two parts, which may be paragraphs or bulleted lists:  (1) what you have accomplished and (2) what you still need to do, including a detailed schedule for completing your paper.  Refer to the updated course schedule (ENG 1020 on-campus classes, ENG 1020 online class, ENG 122 class) for due dates.

RJA #12b: Presentation Plan–Write a paragraph or outline to plan what you will include in your presentation.  This plan will probably closely resemble part of your formal outline.

RJA #12c:  Introduction Check–Go to two of your classmates’ blogs (ENG 1020, ENG 122) and check their introductions (Research Journal Assignment #11a).  In comment on those posts, offer suggestions for improving their introductions or confirm that they follow the guidelines provided on pages 213-216 in your textbook and in “Introductions, Body Paragraphs, and Conclusions for an Argument Paper.”  In your own blog, post links to the web addresses of the posts you commented on (not the main addresses for the blogs).

Use the department and course number (ENG 1020 or ENG 122) and other appropriate tags (”Labels” on Blogger) for each of the three posts.

280 Slides

Students in most of my classes have been doing presentations the last couple of weeks.  Some of them have been using 280 Slides, and all the comments I’ve heard about it have been positive.  280 Slides is a free web-based service where you can “[c]reate beautiful presentations, access them from anywhere, and share them with the world.”  It allows you to

  • import existing PowerPoint presentations
  • access your presentations from any computer with an internet connection
  • use media from services like Flickr and YouTube
  • use built-in themes
  • automatically save and recover your presentations
  • download your presentation to PowerPoint
  • publish your presentation on SlideShare, e-mail it, or embed it in a website
  • create your presentations on the web in your browser without downloading any software

I found the following tutorial for 280 Slides on YouTube:
