The Weekly Discussion Two-Step

  1. 1. The Weekly Discussion Two-Step Lisa M. Lane BY-NC-SA 2.0
  2. 2. Why do we have online discussion?
  3. 3. What goes wrong with online discussion?
  4. 4. In what sense was the American Revolution a cause of the French Revolution?
  5. 5. (a Wordle from my lecture on 19th century industry)
  6. 6. My failed attempt: The History 105 Glossary Project
  7. 7. Students apply their skills to the collection they created Step One: Students post objects to form a collection. Step Two : Based on what they do, I summarize the previous week and direct the next step for this week. The photograph of the Boudicca statue posted by Aaron, the manuscript illumination of King Alfred posted by Maria, and the cartoon about Victoria posted by Mendel, all support my thesis that leadership in England has always been about personality. The personal characer and the charisma of a leader can be more important that the goals or principles that leader proclaims.
  8. 8. “ For my first online class, I am really enjoying this.” “ I agree with you... I am really enjoying the class. I took History x on-line but there were not much of communication and involvement we find in this class, with productive guidance and teaching. “
  9. 9. Step one : have students post a..... Wow! What a great collection! George and Mario posted an interesting x, which really supports what Grace did last week when she wrote..... Now for this week, if you come by before Sunday, create a thesis based on three of the items in the collection. If you’re here Sunday, summarize using this method..... Step two : have them apply skills to the collection.... <ul><li>summarize </li></ul><ul><li>comment </li></ul><ul><li>guide </li></ul>
