wrt fall 2011 Tumblr assignment

Assignment Overview

Starting the week of September 20, each student is required to post at least 3 Tumblr posts per week. The 3 posts can be in any genre of Tumblr post but should be related to the course in the following ways:

  • one post should be in response to the readings and should be posted to the course Tumblr blog
  • one post should be on the theme of your book and/or the goals of the charity you are promoting; in this post be sure to link to the charity and while it is online, the call for entries
  • one post should be a comment in response to a classmate’s post on either the course Tumblr blog or another group’s Tumblr blog; this post can exist in the form of a reblog to your own Tumblr blog that has additional comments or a comment directly under the post

Each post must contain a meaningful title and at least 5 tags. The content and the length of it is up to you. Do not, however, merely use the same genre each week. Vary your entries and you’ll find that you’re getting more out of the assignment and the blog will be more engaging. Update: 9/22/11: Add links to readings when they are freely available online as well as to other materials. Links are what makes the web work; use them!

Each students is also required to upload an avatar and create a profile.

In a separate document, keep track of the following info:

  • title of each post
  • URL of each post
  • date of each post

I will collect these at the end of the semester so I can ensure that each of you have at least the required number.
