I agree with you that there needs to be a rubric or something so that we know what we need to have and do during the class discussions because its like leading in the dark and you have no idea what is expected which makes it kind of hard to decided what to put in the discussion.

Comment on Reflection on the Course by Paul

I’m glad you enjoyed it, and especially glad that you recognized what we were trying to do. Reflecting and writing are very effective ways to learn, and I think that the informality of doing it through blogging has the advantage of letting students do it in their own voices.
But you can give yourself, along with the rest of the group, a lot of the credit for making it a great class. All we did was set the stage. You made it happen.

One of the advantages of minimal guidelines is that it gives you greater freedom. The drawback is that it creates ambiguity. But you dealt with that, you did a lot of work, and you had fun doing it. And if you can do that, you can do anything.

I always found group projects to be a challenge precisely for the reasons you list. But on the positive side, a group can get more work done, group members can bounce ideas off each other, and developing collaborative skills will pay off in the long run. We made the class do a lot of work, but you all rose to the challenge with enthusiasm, engagement and creativity, and I am certain you will reap the rewards of that effort. It was a great class because the students made it so, and you played a large part in that.

If you read it carefully I never said the girdle was bad just that we should all be together! And thanks for everything, I think I’m planning on taking your class next fall with the filming, now can I please have my grades?!
