The survey in this class seems to suggest that
  • I need to spend more time in community-forming activity (not just talk) at the beginning
  • students must practice the five eyes at the beginning, not just read or hear about them
  • I've got to remember that the five eyes are questions that one can ask of a literary work (or windows into the work), and there is no guarantee that they will elicit good content even if followed perfectly
  • getting students to slow down and post consciously rather than spontaneously won't be easy
  • students do not need to be persuaded that there is value in reading the work of others
  • students can be trusted to recognize good writing when they see it
  • I need to think about whether the principles of writing are different for essays than for discussion boards
