Blog Buddy Work
1. Where has your Blog buddy shown strong analytical work (be specific—is it a particular post, a type of analysis, a site for analysis that seemed to click more so than others, etc)? I liked the post about Family Guy: Blatantly Misogynist or Just Not Funny? i think there was a lot of analytical comments in that. I liked that the post showed that their was no real focus on women and that the whole idea of family guy was satirical to everyone.
2. How could your Blog buddy use this strength for the final Blog post and presentation?
Show the way different audiences that look at this topic. How different audiences can interpret the same show many different ways.
3. Think about the following statements in relation to your Blog buddy’s Blog and then provide feedback on each area (constructive praise/criticism): I think you did I really good job addressing the assignments however you might want to use more literary evidence to support your posts.
The Blog is on a topic that has been clearly evident in the Blog posts throughout the semester
The Blog is on a topic that seems to interest my Blog buddy
My Blog buddy’s topic is one that has produced a good set of posts that were analytical used gender as a primary category of analysis
The posts make analytical arguments. The posts are understandable and each post logically outlines and supports the argument presented. The posts were clear, provided insight, evidence, and analysis to connect the topic with the assignment for each of the posts
The sources cited in each post are relevant to the topic and help to aid the understanding of the argument and/or assisted in proving the argument.
I didn't see too many citations, but the ones that were used were relevant and clear, maybe I just missed them.
The quotes used illustrate a broad range of course readings throughout the semester.
The quotes were clear and succinct; additionally, the material was presented so that I could differentiate the Blog buddy’s ideas from that of the author cited.
4. Finally, complete the following:
I thought it was great when you...
kept the layout clean and easy to use. I like the format of your blog. The posts are a good length and there isn't too much "stuff" that doesn't need to be there
I found it confusing when you…
I think there were no confusing aspects
You’re really great at…
Using the detail of the show to analyze the topic at hand
I wish you could focus (more) on/alter/edit/explain/expand on/etc these three things…
(Basically, when you read the Blog posts, what do you wish your buddy had done differently, more of, etc?) a little more of the literature, but I think it is really good
