This is really a placeholder post for the sake of consistency. Here’s what I asked you to do as your sketch assignment for week 3:
Your homework between now and class on Tuesday is to read the introductory chapter of George Pullman’s Writing Online and to liveblog your reading on uBlend — which in this case means as you read, I want you to keep an eye out for claims that seem especially insightful, unexpected, or challenging. When something seems especially worth note, check the uBlend class stream and if someone has not already written about that claim, then add a post where you quote the claim, or at least paraphrase it, (and cite the page number parenthetically so we can all find it). Add a single sentence of your own — even if it’s brief — indicating why you find that claim interesting or posing a question about it. If someone has already addressed the claim that you were going to, add a “+1” reaction to their post, and if you feel like you have a slightly different reaction or want to offer an answer to the question your classmate posed, consider adding a one-sentence comment. You should each have at least one post in the stream, preferably two, and at least one comment on a classmate’s post (in addition to any +1s).
Usually these sketch assignments will be more visual and will be published as posts on your sites, but because you were still getting your sites set up, I went with liveblogging for this week instead.
