せんせいのブログ - Asking どんな

Today's blog entry is asking the question どんな (what kind of?) and how we can use this question in different contexts. Read on! http://sarahboutin.tumblr.com/post/36733597047

End of Course Project Q&A

Sending a shoutout to Shadow M. who asked me a great question about citing images for the EOC project. Here is how you cite images:


Procedure For Citing Images

If you are citing an image found in Google Images or any other image retrieval service, be certain to cite the image in its original context. Do not provide the URL of the enlarged image - you must use the URL of the page where the image was originally shown.

Include all of the following steps whenever possible to cite your image properly:

1) Image creator's last name, first name, if available, or page author's name if available, followed by a period and a space
2) Title of photo followed by a period, in quotation marks. If no title, describe briefly within quotation marks.
3) Descriptive word (photo, map, cartoon, drawing, etc,) followed by a period and a space
4) Website title in italics, followed by a space
5) Website publication date in DD Mo. YYYY format followed by a period and a space
6) Date image was viewed (when YOU viewed it) in DD Mo. YYYY format followed by a space
7) Web address in angle brackets, followed by a period

Example:
Suzuki, Lea. "Mick Jaggar." Photo. SFGate.com 14 Nov. 2005. 14 Nov. 2005

Katakana Stroke Order

Many of you got perfect scores on your lesson 11 katakana writing assignment! I was very impressed. :)


Keep practicing katakana to remember the characters and stroke order. When I was learning Japanese I used to write the characters over and over and over again. Please use the stroke order chart below to help you practice writing the characters and the stroke order - which is very important!
