Welcome!

Welcome to our course motherblog!  This – – and the Community page attached to our wiki – – will be where I post updates and info about the class, assignments, our texts, and other very important things.  Bookmark this url and check it often!

This will be a very interesting semester because we’re going to try something new: co-creating our own textbook.  Why?  You can read part of my reasoning here.  To do this, I’ve created a Wikipedia-style wiki called Democratic Vistas.  There, you can find all of the texts we’ll read in class.  What we need to do as a class is to first create the apparatus (text information, author biography, etc.) that will accompany our textbook.  To do this, you’ll need to create an account on our wiki – – go to Democratic Vistas and click on “create account” in the upper right-hand corner.  Follow the instructions.

To provide a staging area for our textbook authoring – – where you can collaborate, collect, and discuss – -I’ve created a Community site. Again, you’ll need to go to the page and create an account – – simply click on the “create account” link in the box on the right-hand side of the page.  Follow the instructions, and look for further instructions in my post on the Community page.

Once you’ve created accounts on both sites, we’re ready to go.  Buckle your seat belts – – there are no air bags.
