This week we are focusing on the Discipline Essay. This essay focuses on how writing in online spaces/the web/the internet/email is used in your future career plans. When you are researching and interviewing for the essay make sure to look at how writing is used and especially how technology in writing is used.
Read about essay 3 because it’s not just written text, you MUST incorporate other forms with it also this must be researched.

Good work Folks!
I am finishing up grading essay 1 and will attack essay 2 tomorrow. D2L is being picky with me, so I will also endeavor to email each of you with your current grade status.
Keep up the hard work.
Good start Folks,
However- these interview questions need to be used in Essay 3- which is discovering about the web presence and how that works in their career. Each question should either find out how often they use the internet/email or how interactive and visible their business is.
Also- when I said first post/first credit- what I meant is that no duplicate questions, so if someone already had posted a question, please come up with a different question.
These questions should be used when you have your interviews and then incorporated into the essay 3.
Okay- here is the new link:
As of this morning it was working, the perils of internet reading.

Please make sure to include information from both of these articles in your essays!
