Additional Directions for Blog Posts

The basic assignment and grading rubric is posted in the class Sakai site. For the 2015 section of CISC356, blog posts are due

  • Wed April 15, 2015
  • Wed April 29, 2015
  • Mon May 18, 2015.

The news is filled with stories relevant to our class. Follow current events and report on what you see! (Follow the #UDCISC356 twitter hashtag and the class Google Group to see what your prof and classmates have noticed.) In summary, you need to write about something you’re interested in that has at least two sides “battling” about it. And you need to decide which side you are on.

  • Identify the issue you are writing about. Provide enough summary so that your classmates can follow your arguments.
  • Cite at least one source on each side of the issue. Explain the points made by the two sides.
  • State your opinion–either, which side is right, or which side will “win” in a court case.
  • Shoot for 400-600 words.
  • Include links, graphics, video, audio, etc. as needed.
  • Document the sources you consulted using a style similar to that used in your discipline (e.g., IEEE, APA, MLA, Chicago, AP).
  • Rubrics for the blog posts are posted in Sakai@UD.
