Blog Commenting Rules

As a student math blogger, you will be commenting on each other’s posts on a regular basis. You will need to make good comments! Here are some things you should keep in mind:

  1. Use only your first name. DO NOT use last names.
  2. Do not leave any identifying information such as your school name, your email, home address, phone numbers, or name of your sports team.
  3. Remember other people are reading your writing. Be responsible for what you say and respectful in how you say it.
  4. Use proper grammar. Write as though you are writing a letter, not a text message.
  5. Participate in a thoughtful conversation. Create and invite an intelligent and pleasant exchange of ideas. Strive to write more than, “Cool!” or “Good Idea!”. Think about asking a question which will encourage a response.
  6. Make constructive not hurtful comments.
  7. Consider the author and the purpose of the post.
  8. Comments are always related to the content of the post and not about the author.
  9. Answer a question or add meaningful information to the content topic.
  10. Follow the writing process. Comments are a published piece of writing.
  11. HAVE FUN!
