In this class, you will be asked from time to time to head over here to the blog to read an article or other post and respond in the comments section. Since so much of understanding politics is watching it in action, it's important to read editorials and long-form articles that discuss the action inside the beltway.
Whenever you are asked to respond to a post, you should use your first name and last initial as your username so we can all see who is who. Most times, you will be asked to make one comment directly to the post, then reply to one or two other comments as well. This is an assignment, so remember, even if the question seems like it can be answered with a simple "yes," "no," or any other quick response, know that there is always an implied "why?" or "why not?" attached to every question. Give the rest of the class something to think about and respond to. For more guidelines to these assignments, check out the main blogs page on digihistory.
Let's practice with this post.
I wonder where this year's crop of gov students fit on the ideological scale. Here's what you're going to do:
b. Did you fall in with the rest of the class, or were you an outlier?
c. Do you think this class' responses are representative of the school population?
Remember to respond to someone else's reply as well!
