So, I’ve put together the blog. There aren’t any posts on it yet, but come Monday, I’ll have added a “welcome to the blog!” post and the first “news and events” post will be up.
The tentative plan for the blog:
Mondays: news and events, both in the city and on campus
Fridays: fun posts and interviews
Fun posts are of the students’ choosing. They decide what to write about – reviewing a restaurant in town, interviewing their favorite teacher, writing up their visit to a local museum, etc.
Interviews are a way to include all students in the program. My students will be interviewing students from each level in the program and posting these interviews on the blog.
Thoughts so far: The students have no idea how to pick appropriate news and events. Their choice for Wednesday, September 14 was a “Sorority Showcase” for girls interested in joining a sorority. Hardly something relevant for students in our program. We’ll have to work on that. Which makes me a little nervous about the Friday posts, which I haven’t seen yet.
Anyway, here’s the link to the blog. No posts yet, but at least there’s something there to look at! Here’s hoping this experiment is not a disaster.
