(New Participation Requirement): Blog discusion after class


Starting this week, you are required to make observations on the blog
about things
learned in the class (and readings) every week. These can be questions
you had while thinking
the material over, or skeptical comments or connections between the
week's topics and other areas.

Since we are no longer having note-taking, and have also not been
doing summaries of
papers before the class, I think there hasn't been much discussion of
things done.

In my 4-level classes, I start the discussion with "blog questions"--I
thought this will happen
automatically from your side for this class. And yet, there never seem
to be any questions.

So, I thought some creative pressure should be brought to bear.

Let us see blog posts..
