Welcome to LIS 653-01, Fall 2014!

PrattInstituteThis is just a quick first post to show you where our class content will go. You will each post your Weekly Response Posts here (due noon before class, each week). In your weekly response post, you will write 1-2 paragraphs about your thoughts on one (or more) of the readings. Please do not just summarize the reading–tell us something you learned, you were surprised by, you disagree with, etc. These posts will help you organize your thoughts about the week’s reading and prepare you for our subsequent weekly in-class discussions.

I’ll also post about any updates to the class readings or syllabus here on the class blog, and may periodically post items of interest related to the class. This is a place for discussion and exploration!

As you may have noted, there are links at the top to our course syllabus and some tips on how to get started with WordPress, as well as some information on formatting your citations (for assignments–your blog posts don’t require citations). Please take a little time to explore these. If you have any questions, please email me.
