Peruse the list of educational news articles available on our course Web site's homepage. Choose an article, read it, and post a comment here that (1) proves that you read the article and (2) shares with us your thoughts about the article and the educational issue that it's about.

If somebody before you has already posted a comment on the same article, also include in your own comments a response to that person's (or those persons') comments. In other words, what do you think about what your classmates think about the article? (e.g., "Shannon, I understand what you mean when you write ___, but I think ___ . . .")

See the right sidebar of this blog for instructions on posting your comments. Pay special attention to how to make your name appear with your comments; I can't give you credit if I don't know who you are when I read your comments!

Week 4: Education News (SEED 300)

FIRST
Peruse the list of educational news articles available on our course Web site's homepage. Choose an article, read it, and post a comment here that (1) proves that you read the article [tell us which one you read] and (2) shares with us your thoughts about the article and the educational issue that it's about. Look for an article that others before you have not yet read/written about already.

If you are able to identify a curricular or instructional issue within the article, be sure to address that, too.

THEN
Post a second comment that replies to someone else's comment. For this, choose a classmate who read something that you did not and respond to his/her posted comment, reacting to or expanding upon his/her ideas and explaining connections or realizations that occur to you as a result. Your response should reflect your engagement with your classmate's ideas. (You do not have to read what he/she did in order to react to his/her comment, but you may like to do so.

To reply in response to someone else's comment or question, please specify that person in whatever comment you post in response (e.g., "Shannon, I understand what you mean when you write ___, but I think ___ . . .").
