For your article:
To add a picture, be sure to drag one of the basic elements down (I used Paragraph with Picture below here). I linked to a picture on the article, or you can add a picture from somewhere else. I copied the first paragraph of the article as a bit of a teaser. You could also write a short paragraph with an explanation of what the article is about so everyone will be able to decide if they want to read it. Be sure to include a link to the original article.
Each student will have a time when they are supposed to post an article. On the weeks you are NOT posting an article, you'll be reading the articles that other students have posted, and you must comment on 2 articles. Read the comments that other students have left, and you can start or continue a conversation.
