Google Plus for Reading Responses


We will use Google Plus to post reading responses during the semester (and for general class discussion as well). Students are required to have a Google account, to create a Circle with class members, and to regularly check that Circle.

In addition, about a week before each reading is to be discussed in class, I will post a short message to (and restricted to) class members. Each student must post a comment with their reaction and questions about the reading. The requirement is that a comment should be at least one paragraph, and no longer than about four paragraphs.

The student leader should read these comments before class in their preparation to lead the discussion about the paper.
