If you are finding yourself concerned about your grade in the class, I’d like to offer an opportunity to do a project and pick up a few extra points.
Here is how it works. You will need to read one of the following two items:
More credit will be given to students who also read the responses to the essay and comment on the conversation.
A podcast of this lecture is also available, but you will want to use the original link to see the images he refers to while talking.
Then, after having read and thought about the item, please write a detailed and thorough blog post with your response and reaction to the item. This should be approached with more care and polish than a typical reading response. I’m looking for both your understanding of the material presented and your ability to fit it into the larger discussion we are having in this class.
Student may complete two extra credit blog posts, should they feel the need, but a maximum of 7% of the course grade will be awarded to them.
