Critical Response Blog Grading Rubric

Each week I will post a blog prompt and you will complete a blog post that responds to this prompt. This should be an opportunity for you to reflect on the themes and concepts that you found interesting and/or challenging in the week’s reading and to discuss those thoughts with your classmates. Each post must be 250 words, minimum, and it should fully and thoughtfully respond to the prompt. Each week, you also must respectfully and thoughtfully respond to at least one other blog post. Initial posts must be completed by 11:59 pm on Thursday of each week. Response posts must be completed each week by Friday at 11:59 pm. Do not wait until the last minute to post!
