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.
