Now, That’s Funny
One more wonderful thing that’s happening with these topic journals is that students are reading one another’s work and wanting to respond, which in and of itself is not incredibly unusual, as they do respond to one another on their blogs. What’s different? They don’t always know the author of the piece to which they are responding. Connections between students who might not otherwise read, write or speak to one another are happening, and even though those connections may not grow into a more open dialogue and a more ‘real life’ connection, I think that it’s pretty wonderful.
