Looking over your previous essays, research notes, artifacts, sources, and thinking about the final course assignment, what do you think the community at your location is all about? It may be a few things that you think are important and want to write about here. Or it may be one clear thing that you have really figured out you want to focus on. Either way what, you have done all this research over the last two and a half months and now so what?

The blog post below is due by 11:59pm Wed. Please remember to respond to at least one peer.
Choose one person at your ethnography site and, using the knowledge you have developed through our reading and course discussions the last few weeks combined with your observations, draft a one paragraph description of the person.
When you reply to your peers be sure to discuss how they can improve their descriptions through word choice, sensory details, etc.
Based on the reading in your book, what does it mean to map a space?
Please write a one paragraph description of a place that is important to you.
When responding to your peer be sure to critique the use of concrete adjectives and adverbs, as well as nouns and active verbs.
The following post is due Monday, January 30th for both sections of ENGL102.
After discussing and reading the first formal essay assignment sheet, I Researcher, in class and deciding on your ethnographic project site:
Write for five minutes about everything you think you know about your site already. What expectations do you have? Have you been there before? What experiences have you have there? What do you expect to happen there? Who do you expect to be there? Think about these questions as you write.
Do not forget to respond to at least one classmate.
After discussing the ethnography assignment sheet in class on our website please respond to the following:
1. What is your major (if it is undecided that is okay, just write it down)
2. What are your career interests? What jobs would you like to have in the future?
3. Make a list of at least three possible communities, groups, locations you could study for you ethnography this semester.
Post your responses in the comments and reply to at least one student comment by the Wed for the MW class and Fri for the MWF class. Keep in mind that this blog is for both sections of my 102 course so you will be having discussion with more than just the students in your class. This is great because it allows for more feedback.
We will use this blog to reflect on the reading, writing, and discussion we do in class this semester. Details of blog requirements can be found on the course website under assignments then blogs. Be sure to write not only your own blog responses, but respond to your classmates as well. In addition, be sure to take advantage of the affordances blogs have to offer. Use hyper links to link to material on other places of the web and put images, video, and any thing else available to you in your blog posts. Most importantly, have fun blogging! Keep in mind this blog space is for both of my sections of 102 which means you will be having discussion with more than just the students in your class. This will be great for generating ideas and feedback from more perspectives.
