Each student is required to submit an initial blog post of between 200-300 words including at least ONE cited source from your readings/textbook. For topics, please refer to your syllabus. In order for an assignment to be graded complete, you are also required to reply to at least ONE peer. Remember, while blogs are meant to be more conversational, this is still an academic forum. Please use respectful language. As you will be required to monitor this blog site, also be sure to exercise courtesy to your classmates and respond to those who have not yet received a response before giving someone a second response.

Consider how you might be tailoring your RSS and digital news feeds to make sure you don’t miss news about the topics that concern you most. How does such activity widen your horizons and at the same time, limit your exposure to the world?
Thanks for joining me!
