Instructions for Culture Blog Assignments:

0. At the beginning of the semester, you should receive an email inviting you to join your section's blog. Even if you don't get this email, you should be able to access the blog: there will be two Canvas Announcements early in the semester, one with instructions/info about the class blogs, one with the URLs of all the blogs. If you're not able to access your section's blog (e.g. if you enrolled in 102 after we added student names to the blog), please let your instructor know, so that we can fix the problem.

1. For each chapter, you should spend about 40 minutes reading/browsing the materials listed for that chapter, which consists of (a) 2-4 short articles or websites on topics connected to the chapter; (b) a section of 365 Dinge, die Du in Berlin und Brandenburg getan haben musst, bevor Du stirbst; and (c) the list of "Brennpunkt Kultur" boxes included in the chapter. Note: Only the Brennpunkt Kultur info will be tested on the chapter tests. The articles and 365 Dinge... will not.

2. Now spend about 20 minutes writing a blog post (in English, but include as much German as you like!) with your reactions to what you read, and maybe some favorite quotes. It's great if you can include images, or links to other relevant articles, videos, or websites (some, or even most, of your post can be about these related materials, if they're relevant). Remember to also write about the two 365 Dinge activities you chose!

3. There is no length requirement, but your post should give your instructor the impression that you spent the suggested length of time reading the articles and writing your post. Remember to include your name as a label, as well as the appropriate "Kultur" label, i.e." Kultur1" for the Kapitel 7 assignment," Kultur2" for the Kapitel 8 assignment, etc.
