I just wanted to comment some ideas raised in class on Monday. I think that there is so much to say about this class, and so much that we still need to learn about teaching theory, field notes, etc, that we need to keep most of the disscussion on the web, and out of the class. Also, There are a lot different topics to discuss, and only some people will be interested in them, so if they are on the web, they people can skim the uninteresting topics, and really delve into the ones that are interesting. As a seprate issue, I agree with Eugene that it is necessary to read at least most of the postings at some time. There are many interesting disscussions, notes, and feedbacks going on, and I have learned more from the web, than I could have possibly learned in class, or from going by my own experiences alone.
