Weekly Blogs

Rather than having the instructor dictate the topics of discussion, this course will focus on the issues that are most important to you. In order to do so, each student will post a weekly blog entry, no later than 24 hours before the start of class. These 100-200 word posts should demonstrate that you have read and reflected on the reading material. Each student will also be required to write at least one comment on at least two other posts. Comments which do not show the respect expected in a learning community will be taken down from the website and credit will not be given. We will begin each week with a discussion of your posts and comments so come prepared to discuss your ideas. Other historians at Rice and elsewhere will also read our website and contribute to our discussion.
