Snazzy Title (Ari, Luke, and Vera, all amazingly cool)
We went over our websites--we all use blogger and we explored the benefits and limitations of commenting on posts versus writing threads. Some of the benefits of blog rolls is that they serve as a student portfolio, but at the same time the lack of threaded discussion makes an ongoing conversation difficult. Ari's blog includes a separate blog where all students are authors and contribute recipes as art, and this will be an ongoing repository of their contributions to continue to future semesters. Luke's class blogs connect students from different classes and allow interactions between them, such as this one and Vera's students have to choose a philosopher with whom they agree and comment on him in the comments section of the post.
