Commenting Guidelines

In class we have been learning about blog commenting guidelines. I have rated a sheet of imaginary comments


I think one was the least helpful ,because they didn’t check spelling and used slang.

I think the second least helpful one was 6 , because she didn’t use punctuation and she used slang.

The third least helpful one I think is number 4 because they haven’t checked spelling and didn’t address the person.

The next least helpful one is 7 , because they didn’t address the person who its too or say who its from.

I think 8 is the next worst one ,because it was quite rude.

I think 5 is very good ,but it doesn’t have paragraphs or a question

The next is 3 because it doesn’t ask questions like number 2.

The best one is 2 because it asks questions, has paragraphs, punctuation, good spelling and no slang.

The Forest- connectives challenge

Temporal connectives- blue     Causal connectives- red

The forest was thick and dark ,however it was full of life. There were stairs that went on and on. Hence, I made my way down the stairs, through the big forest. After a while, I stopped and went off the path into the forest to explore a bit more, though this was a mistake. Later on, I was still walking , but I came to a stop. Standing there was a big black wall that definitely didn’t belong in a natural green forest. At this point I was too far to go back, so I was stuck behind this big black wall.
