Inventing the University
After reading "Inventing the University" by David Bartholomae, write a blog post, approximately 500 words long, reflecting on the article. It's a long article and not the easiest read, so I thought it might be helpful if I provided you with some questions and suggestions which you could use to write your response. Feel free to write on something entirely different; these questions are just here to get you started!
