Blogger shout-outs this week

Though Kelley Lugea doesn't say who else makes up the "we" in her partially formed group, she did an incredible job using her blog effectively to fill up her group. In fact, she says more than 20 people contacted her wanting to be in her group. See what you can do with your blog when you put your mind to it? Obviously, not everyone can be in her group but those of you who don't get in, follow her example and do what she did.

The updated group presentation shedule was just posted here. It's only about half full, so please claim your date and topic as soon as you have a topic. Then you can do what Kelley did, and build your group around it. Remember, topics, presentation dates, and evaluation topics (which no groups have chosen yet) are all first come, first served. (For those 15 students who wanted to do Sex And The City but didn't get into Kelley's group, why not sign your group up to evaluate Kelley's group's presentation?)
