The purpose of this blog is to provide a forum for student postings for extra credit (and perhaps some posts from the professor). The blog will be open only to members of the class. You can post items on the blog such as images, videos, links, etc., or your own original work or thoughts. All posts must be accompanied with a brief explanation in your own words (45-word minimum) of what each posted or linked item is about. No explanation is required for posts of original thoughts (it’s assumed that such posts will be more than 45 words). If an original post uses sources for information and/or ideas, these must be cited in footnotes. Always use your own wording unless you quote directly (in which case you will put the wording within quotation marks). Students should link to articles rather than copy and paste entire articles on the blog (to comply with copyright laws). Topics must be related to the art of the modern or contemporary periods (post-1900).
