Pop-Culture Profundity- Blog 4


For your next blog post (#4), the idea is to use the blog to have some fun, probe how popular culture (TV, film, comics, music, books, video games, and so on) reflect issues relevant to our class such as ethics, business, power, politics, and the like.

One of my classes last year did a similar theme, but more focused on TV.  You can see that BC report here.  Or, a later one here (BGS 4):

You have a lot of latitude.

Before you hit “PUBLISH:”

1) Proofread

2) Get a featured image (and source it in post)

3) Add a mulitmedia clip.  many, like youtube or vivo can be embedded in your post.  Video help.  Audio help.

4) From now on, when you READ posts, RATE THEM using the star voting.  Try to give only 1-2 5-stars a week.

5) Try adding a poll if you want like I did.  Click “add poll” when composing prompt.
