Blog Council Pop Culture Profundity


Great job this week! Rachel, Robbie, Ben, and Jordi really enjoyed discussing the posts.

First, some compliments:

  • Good job taking in the feedback from last week by improving your titles and generating some really great discussions through your comments
  • Great job adding multimedia to your blog posts
  • Blogs this week were engaging and did a great job of generating conversation
  • Overall, really creative use of examples from pop-culture and how they intersect with our class discussions

Now, some feedback and food for thought:

  • We thought that the class did a really good job of writing about topics that interested them and this showed. However, we think that posts could have benefited with a more clear connection to the class throughout the blog post (as opposed to only at the end). We think this could have been accomplished with use of a thesis statement at the introduction.
  • We were hoping for a broader selection of prompt topics by the class: lots of people posted about TV shows, but  no one wrote about music or books. Try to view some of your classmates posts before creating your own so we generate a diverse range of topics in the future.
  • The posts this week generated some really interesting discussion on plot-spoilers: the ethics of plot spoiling, when is it ok or not ok to discuss a plot line. What do you guys think about the ethics of plot spoiling? Consider tv shows vs. movies, Dramas vs Comedies.
