After Thursday class each week, write a blog post that summarizes the content of the two class sessions that week in your own words and answer that week’s questions related to the class material, lecture, discussion and reading. Clarity is the key - we all have different styles and skill levels of writing, but you should strive to make your writing as clear and specific as possible.
You must summarize and discuss BOTH class lectures and readings to receive full credit.
Spell checks and grammar checks are mandatory!
Additionally, each week you will need to fill in the blanks on the blog post submission form that report your attendance at the two classes, the problem session, and the hours you spent on the final project during that week.
Blog Posts are due the Sunday following the Week at NOON. So the blog post for Week 1 is due Sunday, April 9 and so on...
