Many students have significantly dropped off in commenting on blogs. I want to see the conversation get started again on one anothers’ posts in the commentary sections. Therefore, I’m issuing a prize: A slice of Franke Cheesecake. From Thursday afternoon, May 12 until your class on Monday, May 16 or Tuesday, May 17 you have to comment on as many blog posts as possible.

  • You can comment on any blog from our three Bible classes.
  • Your comment should be useful and insightful.
  • Comments such as: “Great post!” or “I like your photo.” or “Spam Spam Spam” Do NOT Count.
  • The top three students in each class will receive a hearty slice of my homemade cheesecake.

There’s no way for me to monitor each and every comment you make.
At the beginning of class we’ll go check the top three students to see if they’re telling the truth.

Get started!
Happy conversation-making!

  • Post it to your blog.
  • Tell your readers why you picked the photo, and describe your emotions.

Hey Matthew Bloggers,

Be sure to read Chapter 12 of Levi’s gospel and reflect on it.
I also want to encourage each of you to try and use Wylio.com and the Teaching Sagittarian blog (as noted in my previous post) to post a free photo and give it proper attribution. The photo can be anything you think is related to Matthew 12.

Cheers and much love!

DUE: Wednesday, March 30 (PE) and Thursday, March 31 (SC and EB)

First and foremost, READ Matthew 8!!!

Goals today:

  • Use Flickr Creative Commons to search for photos related to Matthew 8
  • Search suggestions: Leprosy, Faith, Centurian, Soldier, Rome, Paralyzed, Healing, Fever, Mother, Foxes, Birds, Jesus, Nature, Storm, Lake, Boat, Chaos, Demon, Pigs. (HINT: try broad terms with one word)
  • Create a header that reflects Matthew 8
  • You may use any site for creating headers, Picnik is only one suggestion
  • Post the header on your blog – either as a photo OR your actual header
  • Explain the photos and meaning of your header in words
  • Finally, check out your classmates’ headers and comment on them 🙂

DUE: Wednesday, March 09 (SC, EB) and Thursday, March 10 (PE)

I was inspired by another teacher, and I want to encourage all of you to make your own custom header (photo) for your blog. Your header is one of the main things that defines your page and tells others the kind of person you are. Also, by creating a custom header, you avoid any copyright issues.

First, where’s your header?
Go to: Dashboard > Appearance > Header >Upload

Second, what should you upload?
Anything! You should either use your own photos or use a creative commons site such as Flickr.

How can I better customize?
Try using a quick, free, and easy site such as Picnik to arrange a collage of photos (I recommend the set of 2 or 3 arranged horizontally). One thing to keep in mind is the size of your collage. The header for my theme is 760 x 190 pixels. You can also use Adobe Photoshop CS5, which is on all of the ICS computers.

We’ll go over these specifics the next time we’re in the lab.

Happy creating!
