Weekly Blog Posts: 20%
You will write (500-800 words) blog responses to the reading and each provide a comment on a peer’s blog each week, before the next week’s class meeting. The goal of the blog posts is to extend the conversation and coverage of the course by allowing you to 1) express, share, and comment upon interests, questions, and concerns related to the readings and also to 2) enable the professor to address and incorporate these topics in that week’s meeting. It is also a place to draft ideas and text for use in your essays.
–Blog posts are due on Monday at 6pm weekly; late posts will not receive credit.
–You will be graded on the completion and content of the blog posts, though grades will not be given on individual blogs. You will receive a holistic grade (for completion and content) at midterm.
