Blogging for grades...

One of the options I offer students in my American Government course (in lieu of research paper, etc.) is to create and maintain a blog on a relevant subject throughout the semester. Several folks have taken me up on the offer. The first operating one is "Present Arms!: Military News for the Average Joe", and I have high hopes for John's making a good site of this.

The topic is certainly a good one -- especially if he addresses some current issues about the military's human resource problems that are making the front page of the New York Times and other papers. There are also a couple of interesting "Open Source" shows (here and here) devoted to the topic....
