You are required to create blog posts for each of the reading summaries you’re assigned. Additionally, you need to comment on another person’s blog at least once every other week (12 times over the course of the semester). You may, of course, post and comment more frequently. The posts can include text, images, video, and audio files. See the syllabus, and pay attention in class for more details about these assignments. Please learn to use the “Insert read more” tag so your post doesn’t take up too much space on the mother blog. I expect the blog will help you become more engaged with the course materials and help you develop a deeper and more sophisticated reading and writing in the field of history. Moreover, I think these blogging exercises will assist you in becoming more adept at historical analysis and more proficient in locating and using historical sources.
