Porsha and I are connecting our developmental reading courses CSZ 099 and CSE 099 (see Porsha’s post for course description) via blogger. Porsha's class has been actively posting to blogger but my students have just been "learning by leaking." Our students are using the same text ( America Now by Robert Atwan) this semester hence this makes collaborating much easier. The biggest challenge so far has been trying to figure out what assignments best fulfill the course objectives and ours students' needs.
A tentative lesson plan is to have my students collaborate on a research paper using Google docs. This research paper will include an overview and comparison of the Dictionary and Worknik.com. We haven't quite worked out how Porsha's class is going to contribute to this assignment but the plan, for now, is to post the final paper on blogger to get feedback from Porsha's students.
