Blogs are taking the planet by storm!
Millions of people have joined the Blogger revolution and are posting their thoughts and feelings online for the whole world to see.
One Blogger who has caught the attention of millions is
“The Baghdad Blogger.”

Consider the following

1. What do you know about Baghdad?
2. Where is Baghdad?
3. Why are so many people dying in Baghdad, everyday?

First, young scholar, cleverly answer questions 1,2, and 3 listed above.
Next, go to the “Baghdad Blogger’s blog page.
Next, read several of his first hand accounts of life in Baghdad today.
And last, re-tell (in your own words) any story posted on his blog since September 11, 2005.

Approach this assignment as if you were hosting your very own radio show.

State your name, the date and state the name of your show - for now, call your show "your advisory."

Then, in your best writing style, fold your answers to the three Baghdad questions (above) into the introduction of your story.

Remember, your story is about a day in the life of the Baghdad Blogger. Retell any post of his, since September 2005, in your own words.

Close your story by restating your name and the name of your advisory.

Post your comments on my blog if you have questions about this assignment.

Mr. Songhai
