My students are now posting the different parts of their staged essays on the blogs. I'm still struggling to get the commenting part going - having outside readers comment seems to have helped in the past, so if you, like I, procrastinate by posting on blogs, and want to drop a comment on their various stages and other posts, that would be great:
The 101 blog is here - their theme is work and their drawing on archive sources and other course texts to investigate a work related theme. Some will be doing an interview themselves, and others will use course text. Student blogs are linked along the side.
The Art, Protest, Politics blog is here - this is a great class with great discussion and papers, but the blogs have played a smaller role. That should be changing as they investigate a political art work of their choice. Student blogs linked along the side.
Also, I'm interesting in archiving this semester's blogs (with their permission). I take it this is a pretty easy thing to do?
