Our Western Civilization II Chapter Blogs

In Fall 2009, following the suggestion of Jim Groom and inspiration from the 2009 Faculty Academy, I instituted a course website and a series of chapter blogs as a group assignment for my Western Civilization II course.  Together with Jim, I plan to explain how he launched this site, who did what, how I graded the assignments, how the students reacted to the assignment, and the overall results of the initiative.  Once we have presented the site, I hope to hear ideas from the audience as to how to improve the assignment for future courses.
