MONDAY NIGHT Inaugural Article – Rework


OK – This was our first Blog Assignment for the Semester. Some of you did it and some did not. However, we had yet to go over the Blogging Guidelines in any of the Econ classes. With that in mind I gave a 14 of 20 to anybody who did the assignment. We’ve now gone over the blogging guidelines – You have an option. You may keep your 14/20 C or you may repost it according to the Guidelines along with name and hour here. Your score if it is higher than 14 will replace your 14. Otherwise you keep the 14. This assignment must be posted by 11:00 PM Monday night. If you did any extra credit within the previous post, you may do so here…otherwise choose the same article that you did last time.

Check here if you would like to pull up your old post for this Assignment.

I’ve selected four articles that revolve around the inauguration for you to read. Your assignment will be to comment on one of the four. You may choose to comment on more than one (for extra credit). Make sure to place all article comments in the same post – but label separately. Label the post with the two word topic in parenthesis following the article title. Your discussion on the article may go in any direction you please – you can summarize, provide insights or opinion – your call. However as I read your post, I need to know you read the article and are not just yapping out of your rear end.
