Good Job

Dearest class,

I am very happy that the class has taken my suggestions seriously and has acted promptly to my call to begin your discussion online.
I have commented on your posts and would like you to take part in the discussion as well. A gentle reminder - whenever I use the term 'you', I am referring to EVERYONE in the team. Take part actively, be responsible for your own learning. Make it an enjoyable learning experience =]

By the way, everyone in the group can add details to the mind map. In fact everyone should! All you have to do is to ensure everyone in the group signs up for a account. Add each other using the tab - friends which is on the right. So, the person who has done it this time round, go gather your team mates and get them to sign up!
I need everyone to add me as well. Add me using this email address -

On another note, I need every group to add another post to our class blog. This time, I want to know everyone's role in the group. By now, everyone should have taken up a responsibility be it a discussion director, vocabulary wizard etc. Please refer to the roles on our class wiki.

After much deliberation, I have decided that everyone in 1D must sign up for an account at Shelfari. If we want to develop a reading culture, I feel strongly that we should not limit ourselves to simply reading the book. Read, reflect, comment, respond and connect to what others across the globe has to say about a book that you are currently reading, have read or are interested in reading. Get excited 1D, get really EXCITED!
