Many of your coures assignments must be posted to this blog (not a personal blog). The goal is to create a collaborative course blog, as there will be entries posted regularly by different groups of students. Additionally, any week you are not posting and entry you will comment on a classmate’s post (see the classroom contribution page for details on this assignment). These comments should be thoughtful considerations, and are the place where you can ask questions about your classmates’ posts, respond to questions they pose, link to other visual media, or evaluate what conversations your classmates’ posts enable.
You are required to embed links in your blog posts to articles, definitions, and especially images, videos, and other web ephemera that are relevant to your argument. You should also link the scholarly articles and cultural productions from class to media you encounter elsewhere in your lives.
If you are new to blogging, don’t fear–we will discuss this assignment thoroughly on the first day of class, as well as go over what constitutes a good blog post.
See you all soon!
