Another Experiment in Educational Blogging...

Following Doug's lead, I have decided to utilize blogging as a teaching tool this quarter. For years I have taught an oral advocacy class with difficult reading from Aristotle's On Rhetoric. Because the testing in the class is all in the form of oral arguments, to encourage analysis of the reading I have required written reflections of under 150 words each week. In the past, I have received these via email. Because of this form, students could not see the work of others, and there was no chance of a dialogue. Blogging has changed all that; I have them enter their reflections as comments to a post each week. The reports on the first week of reading are coming in, and I am impressed. You can check out the On Rhetoric blog here. -- Mark Osler
