Boundaries and Warnings

It's always been good idea to think before you speak, think before you write, think before you publish. But the nature of online communications magnifies the immediacy and the intensity of the consequences. Sometimes this can be good. Other times…

Blogging Plug and Slug

In future classes when we have technical material to cover, we won't have so much time for in-class discussions.

In order to get into the swing of the RRRR sequence, I am asking that today, everyone spend class time catching up on their blogging. In the future, we won't spend nearly as much class time on blogging the assigned readings -- that should be happening before class.

If you're already caught up, feel free to start working on the blogging that will prepare you for Monday's class.

Reminder... for every class period where there are assigned readings:

  1. I'm asking for a single Agenda Item for each assigned reading that gets a separate entry on the blog. That means that about 24 hours before class started, I was looking for each student to post at least one brief quotation from each assigned reading. (There are four short articles assigned for today, so I'm looking for four agenda items. All I want is a meaningful title, a direct quote from the assigned reading, and a brief statement about what you would talk about if called on. Could be as brief as 2 or 3 sentences -- but feel free to embellish.)
  2. I am also asking that everyone read their peer entries, and post 2-4 comments on each reading. (These can be informal but should always be respectful. I'd like a little more than "Good job" or "I agree," but you can certainly feel free to agree with each other as well as disagree.)
  3. Write a single 100-200 word reflection, covering one or more of the assigned readings, and mentioning by name at least one student who's blogging has made you rethink your position or who otherwise helped you gain an insight. (You may post these reflections on your blog, but you are also welcome simply to bring them to class.)
