    50. Huck Finn # 1 - Here are your guidelines for blog entries: -I am not going to provide you with length requirements for each blog entry. -Answer each question thoroughly and provide adequate textual evidence to support your claims. -Check for spelling, punctuation, usage errors, etc. Do not write responses in “IM” or “text message” lingo. -Respond to one classmate’s blog entry by the due date (Check the calendar) -Be respectful of the opinions of others at all times. You do not have to agree with everyone, but you must disagree respectfully. THIS IS NOT A FORUM FOR ARGUMENT. PLEASE TAKE DEBATE IF THIS IS WHAT YOU SEEK. We will be studying literature primarily through discussion. Reminder: When it comes to literary analysis, which we will be doing a great deal of this year, there are many answers to every question. I am looking for sustained arguments, not answers that I agree with. Keep this in mind as you respond to my questions this summer. Late responses will receive a 0. No excuses will be accepted. If you are having computer issues, go to a library or the house of a friend or relative. If you don't complete all components of this assignment, I strongly urge you to drop the course.
