Each student will contribute to the weekly class blog, posting an approximately 400-600 word response to the week’s readings.

There are a number of ways to approach these open-ended posts: consider the reading in relation to its historical or theoretical context; write about an aspect of the day’s reading that you don’t understand, or something that jars you; formulate an insightful question or two about the reading and then attempt to answer your own questions; or respond to another student’s post, building upon it, disagreeing with it, or re-thinking it. In any case, strive for thoughtfulness and nuance, and be sure to incorporate at least 3 readings from the unit as well as visual enhancements.

For examples on blog posts, see below. You can also see this excellent guide on how to write good blog posts. Additionally, see the rubric for blog posts.
