In order to be considered for the “A” bundle of grades, you must write a final, reflective blog post in addition to the eight regular blog posts. The premise of this ninth post is simple: rather than blogging about our primary or secondary sources, you’re going to blog about your own blogging.
Begin by reading all of your posts and comments (you can access a list of your posts from the author archive at the top of the site). As you reread them, take notes, and notice what you noticed in your earlier posts.
Compose a short analysis and reflection of your posts. Some questions to consider in your post might include: What do you usually write about in your posts? Are there broad themes or specific concerns that reoccur in your writing? Has the nature of your posts changed in the past fifteen weeks? What changes do you notice, and how might you account for those changes? What surprised you as you reread your work? What ideas or threads in your posts do you see as worth revisiting? What else do you notice?
I encourage you to quote yourself in your reflection and link back to earlier posts! This final reflective post, if you are going to do it, must be on the course blog and categorized as the Reflective Post by Monday, May 15.
