I think I have it. In Composition 2, Tunxis’ research course, we will be watching Wesch videos and simply infer subjects from there. It will give an opportunity to branch into media, politics, law, new media, futures, and space. Basically, I have generic assignments constructed whose content can be pretty much anything, but lay a grid of rules down for length, presentation, and content.
We will see heavy use of collaboration, wikis, blogs, netvibes as an organizing tool. Then we’ll see what happens.
