Having read through what folks posted to the discussion board, one thing that almost everyone thought would be a good idea, is to create and manage a blog. This is an easy and manageable project given that we have roughly 15 weeks in a semester and 15 people in the class. Additionally, a post to a blog can count as an ICRN or a Writer's notebook entry and, if needed, can excuse an absence that might otherwise affect your grade.
In order to do this project, we need to have an excellent idea for a short-term blog that a wide range of participants can contribute to. Use this space to pitch your idea for a blog. If you don't have an idea, respond to ideas you see that you think are good ones. Alternatively, you can add to or otherwise modify a suggestion that you think is good but good be better.
Using your participation in this discussion board, we'll decide on a blog project for the class, and students will sign up for a week to post something. From there on out the project will be on you.
NOTE: it could be possible to combine this with other professionalization opportunities. For instance, if this is a blog that other English majors might value, we could link to or in some way connect to the existing social media sponsored for and by the English Department. But we don't have to go that route. I only suggest it as a way to increase your audience and potentially audience interaction with the blog.
