Sign up for individual class presentations

You'll sign up in seminar this week for the individual class presentations. There can be be two per week: there's different advantages to going earlier or later.

I'll blog the completed schedule after Thursday's seminar.

The assignment is to select a short story or book chapter from any course text and give a short, five minute, oral presentation describing of your choice of fiction (a) how it is blog-like, (b) how it is un-blog-like, and (c) how the difference between a. & b. can be identified as a unique quality of fiction. You will then hand in to me all your notes, any rough work, and list of resources used.

You will only need to select one blog for your comparison. This assignment doesn't require you to understand the essence of blog-ness.

The assignment will be graded on your degree of preparedness. Based on your presentation and the documentation you hand in, if it is clear that you did serious effort and worked independently, you will be given full marks.

If you have any specific questions about the assignment requirments, just post them in the comments section of this post, and I'll add my replies there.
