Reading Responses

Please use this area to post  responses to your assigned readings. Your first post will be a reflection on your experience at the BioBlitz on August 26th. Please make sure to categorize these posts as “BioBlitz” using the menu on the bottom right side of your screen. For additional help, check out this “how to” video on Writing & Publishing a Post.

In the second half of the semester you will be asked to post responses and discussion questions for a reading assignment designated by Dr. Zarnoch. Please categorize these as “Reading Responses” and tag them as the author’s last name and any other keywords you feel are relevant. The categories will ensure the post appears on the right section of this course site, and the tags enable users to search and find information pertinent to specific topics discussed in this class. For additional help, check out this “how to” video on Adding Categories and Tags to your Post

Finally, remember to comment on your classmates posts! Every student will be expected to read the responses of their peers and respond using the comment features. This online discussion will be a launching point for the in-class discussion on the readings. (Please note that you can respond either to the original post or a specific commenter.)
