What did you find?

As you may have noticed, the blog post assignments have been winding down -- I've been trying to give you all plenty of time to work on your research projects. Over the weekend, though, I'd like you each to write a brief blog post telling us about what you think is the most interesting finding your group has made. Was there something that surprised you? Piqued your curiousity? Connected back to something you found particularly interesting in one of the readings? Tell us about it.

There's no required post length for this one, but as usual, please remember to read and comment on a few of your peers' posts. I know I'm looking forward to reading about what you found!

Plagiarism, College Culture, and You

For this week's blog post, I'd like you to reflect on your own personal experiences, and compare those to the student experiences you read about over the break. What has your experience as a student at SFSU been like? How has your experience differed from the experiences of the students at Notre Dame, as described by Susan Blum in My Word? Try to avoid describing your experience in abstract, general terms. Instead, be specific; tell us a story to illustrate what your experience has been like.

As usual, your post should be about 500 words, and I expect you to comment on at least two of your peers' posts.
