Overall Liz and I really liked the in-depth quality of the blogs, despite their being slightly redundant.
First and foremost, THE BEST BLOG!
This title goes to Jack! We thought his blog was well organized, thoughtful, and brought the topic back to why we care.
We also thought these other blogs were superb:
Cate: Great job bringing in outside information!
Nicole: This blog was thoughtful and different. It also covered the topic of globalization. Finally, it cited sources and did not have any grammar errors.
Andrew: MOST CREATIVE!! This blog said exactly what the rest of the class has been thinking.
Kendall: Had a very meditative quality about it which we enjoyed.
Vlad: This blog addressed the issue of responsibility which was unique and made for a much better read.
Some general comments we had were:
As far as comments go, on Zach’s blog, The Gap Between American Understanding and Chinese Reality, had a good chain of response. Zach responded, which we liked!
Christian and Matt had good extra information to add via their comments which was also awesome.
