Guiding Questions for Student Live Blogging of the US Presidential Inauguration


Tips for the Collaborative Live Blog:
Just a few tips and reminders for the live blogging experience:

1. When directing a comment at a particular person, use the "@" symbol and then the person's name
2. Please use your real first name and last initial
3. As you are watching the event, contribute the thoughts and ideas that come to your mind...that is really what a live blog is. Those thoughts can be commentary, questions, re-stating what you hear in a way that makes sense to you, etc. Sometimes you might want to use quotation marks to quote a statement and then comment on it.

A Few Guiding Questions
