Inserting Links into a blog Post

For your assignment you need to create 3 links per post.

1.  One link within the text that will take the reader to another post.
2.  Two down at the bottom that will take the reader to a new post to continue reading.

Linking within your text to keep the reader directions:
1.  Go to the page you want to link and copy the location of the individual blog page.


1.  Locate in your text a place where you would like to make your link and highlight it.

Reading with students can be very challenging.  Many of them shut down when presented with large readings in packet form or even just readings that have a front and a back page.  Since I teach US history, reading is a standard part of my class and one of my jobs as a teacher of history is to help them develop the skills necessary to become better readers for high school where the text is going to get harder and they are going to independently have to read more than ever.  I think of my class as one of the last times that the students will be given strategies to help themselves read harder text with a teacher that will walk them through the process step by step.

2.  Click the link button and paste the URL into the box.




3.  Click the ok button and now your text will be a link to your other post.

The Trail of Tears



Here is the Indian Removal Act video clip from class.  This tells the story about Jackson's ability to remove the Indians west of the Mississippi River.
