I am having my students maintain blogs this semester as part of Intermediate Composition (ENG3010). I have given them little direction on this except that they should post once a week on whatever we’re reading or doing (Presidential Nomination Speeches, Melville’s “Bartleby, the Scrivener, and DFW’s “Host” so far), and that they should keep in mind that the blog is public and meant for a general audience. I am hoping this gives them an opportunity to find their voices and that they make the blogs their own in a way I rarely see in student writing. We’ll see how that goes (althought the number of blogs called “ENG3010” or something similar is disheartening). If you’re interested, I put a list of the blogs up in the sidebar at my blogger site. Student names appear only if the student has chosen to include it.
