Participating in this class blog is a key requirement in this course. The weekly blogging cycle will be a minimum of two blog entries each week (due by Tuesday’s class), with at least one entry directly offering a response to discussion questions about the required readings for Tuesday –  students are expected to do at least 9 reading response entries throughout the semester. Other entries can build on other bloggers’ entries, bring in “found objects” from the web, discuss in-class elements, or whatever crosses your mind that relates to the course.

By Thursday’s class, you should browse other students’ posts and comments, and leave at least two comments of substance on their postings. The weekly requirement of two entries and two comments are meant as a minimum – ideally students will find blogging and commenting an engaging practice that will frequently surpass that threshold. The blogging requirement will comprise 15% of the final course grade.

The course’s final exam will be administered through the class wiki, MiddMediaWiki. All work on the wiki must be completed by May 19th at noon. Policies for the wiki are contained therein.

More assignment info will be posted throughout the semester…
