Reading Response Blog Assignment

Each day that a post is due, post a 1-2 paragraph entry that either 1) responds directly to one of the textual readings due for that day, or 2) relates some part of the readings to something in the news or something else you have read/seen/played. All posts are due 24 hours before the class in which the material is discussed (so if it is “due” for class on Feb. 24, it must be done by classtime on Feb. 23).

For the day of class, you must then respond to three posts. At least one of those should be an un-commented-upon post (if one exists). Your response may be as short as 2-3 sentences, or may be as long as you wish. The three required comments should be in response to a “Weekly blog post” post.

In addition to your “regular” posts (which begin on 23/24 Feb.), you should attend three events at some point during the semester and post about how they relate in some way to leadership studies or this class. All three must be posted by the end of classes.

Your blog entries are due most weeks of the semester (there are a total of nine). Responses are due 24 hours before class (so classtime on Sunday/Tuesday). Comments are due by class time (24 hours later).

To post, log in to WordPress, and you will be taken to the Dashboard. On the left, click on “Posts” and “Add New,” OR at the top of the screen “+New.” Choose “Reading Response” as your post type. Type your entry. When you are done, press “Publish.” Do not worry if your post doesn’t appear immediately; often, new posts (from new posters) have to be “approved” by me before they will appear.

You are being graded on the thoughtfulness of your entries and comments, and should be respectful of others (even if you disagree with them – which is okay!). You are not being graded on your grammar or style, but you should be aware that this is a public board and avoid inappropriate statements or content.
