Jessica On The Web – Essays Coming On Monday

Hello everyone,

Last week I asked 28  students if they would write a short essay about what they do online, how much time they spend online and how they communicate with their friends. It was originally due today but because of the flu my teacher gave everyone until Monday to complete the assignment. Nearly 30% of the students are out with the flu.

I’m sorry about tbis week, but Monday I’ll have a lot to blog about.

 Jessica.
