Tom Whitby commented on a post on Blogger.
Publicly commenting on another's work is really a fairly new thing. We always had letters to the editor, but that was not he same. Commenting on a post with substance takes courage. Not everyone wants to expose themselves to public criticism of their comments, especially if they are taking issue with the blogger. You are right to address this in your class. it is a learned skill that needs to be taught, encouraged, and supported. It is a shift in culture that needs to occur if we are to be more open and collaborative in our approach to change. Thanks.
