B l o g Some suggest that the expression of online identity is performative, and you essentially become what you type . As you explore the notion of identity throughout the various themes of the course and various readings and videos, you will progressively develop a blog which explores cultural identity from a variety of perspectives. The assigned cross-cultural texts and videos in English and discussions in class will help you culturally ground your blog entries Within this blog, you will post 4 written entries – a descriptive essay, a dialogue, a poem , and a narrative . Each blog entry will be based on one form of visual media including images, film clips, cartoons, and short films. Your instructor will grade the first draft of the written entry alerting you to the necessary revisions (vocabulary, grammar, etc.). You will then submit revised entries 1 and 2 at the mid- semester and revised entries 3 and 4 at the end of the semester. Your final grade will be the average of the grades for the two versions. The due dates for written entries are listed on the course calendar. Revisions are required. Because revisions are essential to the learning process, your memoir grade will be reduced by a letter sign if blog revisions are not submitted. For homework, you will also be asked to post informal blog entries, images, and links on your blog. French Aa N. Mills

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
