Welcome to the             Internet Café where you’ll have a chance
to pull up a chair and join our Writer’s Circle. First, we all want to
know who you are, so here’s a short writing activity. Open up a
word document, save it as “About Me” and answer these questions
in a one-page paper. When you are finished, click on YackPack, a
program that records, stores, and allows you to share your spoken
word with others. You can record your essay and listen to how it
sounds. Your instructor can hear it, too, and respond. Don’t forget
to include your first name only. Contact your instructor if you need
help with YackPack.
