EL 336: Portfolio I - "Keep talking to me, but let me blog it as you go."

This is the first installment of my Blog Portfolio for the 2008 spring semester class EL 336: History and Future of the Book. This particular class examines the book as a technology that has evolved along with the way we communicate with one another. So far we have talked about the evolution from oral to manuscript culture. Overall the class covers oral and manuscript culture, pre-literate society and literate society.

For those of you that did not follow my blog prior to now I will give you a brief exposition about me. My name is Leslie Rodriguez and welcome to my weblog sponsored by Movable Type. I am a senior at Seton Hill University and as part of my class and the New Media Journalism program I write and respond with blog entries on various topics for class and for fun. The entries below are used from: Brookfield's Book (Eyewitness), Tribble & Trubeck's, Writing Material, and Havelock's The Muse Learns to Write.

These entries are then posted for public view on my blog. This entry acts as an introduction to my blog portfolio which includes selected entries that reflect on our in class discussions, published news articles and various texts that Dr.Jerz has assigned the class. The following topics will be examined and discussed in my blog portfolio:

The Collection:
My best blog entries that demonstrate intellectual growth. Entries are categorized accordingly.

Coverage & Timeliness: - All of my agenda item entries include a direct quote from an assigned reading, identify the source of the quote, and link back to the course web page devoted to that reading. I have combined these two categories of coverage and timeliness because they tend overlap. The timeliness entries were ones that I posted on time (such as agenda items posted 24 hours before the class discussion, or reflection papers posted before the class meeting.

Interaction & Depth: - Several entries that demonstrate my ability to interact with my peers. My entry might link to something a classmate posted, or my entry might have attracted comments from peers. I have combined the categories of interaction and detph here. Depth entries on my blog show my ability to write in depth. All of my informal reflections cover this particular category.
