Why Do We Blog?

The goal of this blog is to allow students from Mr. Cicione’s English classes the opportunity to comment on the literature that we are studying in class. Students are encouraged to find resources related to the works and share them with their classmates. As students become more familiar with this technology they will be able to incorporate ideas and items that they might not be able to present using more conventional methods. Have fun with it. —Mr. Cicione
