Before Class

Blog Assignment

Due Sunday, September 27th at noon. Worth 3 points. Blog responses should be at least 300 words; they should be written in a semi-formal scholarly style (with complete thoughts and correct spelling, grammar, and syntax). Partial responses (including responses that fail to meet the minimum word length or clearly fail to answer the prompt) will receive partial credit. Late posts will not be accepted.

I asked you to explore the Crimes of the Century and play with the Interactive Database before class. On your blog, I’d like you to discuss the topics you chose as potential project topics. Did your thoughts change after class tonight? What interests you about these topics? What would you like to know? Why?
