2. Blog discussions must have at least one contribution from each member and are due ONE WEEK after the class session under discussion. This means by the start of the next Wednesday/Friday class.
3. Blogs can be accessed within BBLearn. Click on the appropriate class blog and follow the instructions. If not the first person posting, you should always post within your group’s blog entry, not separately or in another group’s entry.
4. After the group analysis done on Sep 14/16, groups will receive feedback on their post to help you with your blogs post.
5. Each student’s blog post is expected to include the following:
a main claim/response relevant to one of the themes discussed in class. If yours is NOT the initial post, this claim must not repeat earlier posts and should acknowledge a previous post from your group. (15 pts)
specific and non-repetitive (not a passage already used in another post) texual support for your claim from one or more of the primary source readings. (15 pts)
explanation of how your textual reference supports your claim and, if you are disagreeing, explanation of why you disagree (15 pts)
legible grammar and spelling (5 pts)
1. As a group, you must choose one Wed/Fri discussion AFTER OCTOBER 26th to write a reflection paper on.
2. Reflection papers are individual assignments, and require you to discuss ALL the readings from the selected discussion in terms of at least two themes brought up in class. They are due ONE WEEK after the class discussion.
3. Expectations for the assignment include:
At least 2 pages, double-spaced, 11 or 12 font, default margins
Heading with only name and date
Grades will be assigned according to the following rubric
an “A” paper makes claims about at least two themes addressed by the readings, makes use of specific references from all of the readings, explains clearly how these references support your interpretation, and contains good grammar and spelling.
a “B” paper addresses at least two themes, makes use of specific references from most of the readings, explains clearly at times how they support your interpretation, & has rare grammar/spelling errors
a “C” paper addresses at least 1 issue, makes use of specific references from at least 3 readings, has generally unclear explanation and some errors
a “D” paper addresses 1 issue, makes use of references from no more than 2 readings, contains completely unclear explanation, and has considerable errors
an “F” paper identifies 1 issue, makes vague reference to the readings, contains little or no explanation, and is difficult to read due to errors
