Student-led Discussion

Good morning! I had technical difficulties over the weekend (reached my usage max with my domain), but thankfully, those issues have been resolved. As I mentioned in class, I am asking students to be responsible for one reading over the rest of the semester – your comments will start our discussion of that particular reading. So, for your reading, come prepared with a summary/analysis, discussion questions, comments, or anything you think may be helpful to the class.

Below is the list: one student per line. Please respond to this post with your choice; all readings are first come, first served. You will notice that readings are still in flux for the last two days, and I will post those as soon as possible.

Oct 1 – Langdon Winner – TAKEN
Oct 1 – Michael Joyce
Oct 3 – two Kairos pieces (“This is Scholarship” and “words are the ultimate abstraction”) – TAKEN
Oct 3 – NCTE Guidelines (I suggest adding other resources for adjusting education to the 21st century) – TAKEN
Oct 8 – Stuart Moulthrop – TAKEN
Oct 8 – Robert Coover – TAKEN
Oct 10 – Copyright – TAKEN
Oct 17 – Nicholas Carr/James Bowman – TAKEN
Oct 17 – Christine Rosen and Chabris/Simons – TAKEN
Oct 22 – Jay Bolter – TAKEN
