I have just started a blog for a course I teach at the University of West Florida, “Peoples and Cultures of the World.”
The following is from the description of the blog’s purpose I have posted:
“This Blog is intended to complement assigned readings and in-class activities of a course I teach at the University of West Florida, “Peoples and Cultures of the World.” It is intended primarily for students enrolled in the course, but it is open for anyone to read along or comment. I envision this as an opportunity to expand class discussion beyond the classroom.”
The first post on the blog is “The Importance of Reading.” I would especially welcome comments on the course blog from anyone with thoughts on the topic. I’d find that interesting in its own right, and I think my students would find it helpful to encounter a variety of perspectives on why reading is important.
