I've learnt more about the people in my class, to start with. Blogs are quite a powerful tool for people to represent themselves. In terms of what I've learned in English, well, I think that the whole 'show, don't tell' lesson was useful. Most of the time I manage to avoid falling into that particular pitfall, but the lesson did give me some useful tips on how to write well.
One thing I enjoy about this class:
I find the discussions interesting - I think we all enjoy sharing our viewpoints. It's quite interesting to see all the different sides to any given story or subject. I think the rules for the discussions work well, aside from the occasional 'hubbub'.
One thing we could do differently:
I think we could implement some more rules for the discussions - I'm hesitant about the so-called 'three card rule', but we might want to implement some rules to keep discussions on-track and away from the hubbub.
