1. Class participation. Lots of it. In seminars, we teach each other.
2. Use of your blog to analyze homework assignments. After you read, write on your blog about what you read. Be analytical.
3. Use of your blog to link and interact with other blogs in the class and, for that matter, other voices out there in blogdom. I'll explain in class what I mean about that.
4. A short final paper. Which you could also blog.
