LaLL (Learning about Language Learning
PurposeThe blackboard journal is designed to allow students to discuss their language learning experiences across sections. It should help each of you to reflect on your own language learning strategies and compare them with those of others. As you read the postings on the discussion board, please keep in mind that, because we each have different learning styles, what works for one person may not necessarily work for you. On the other hand, what works for you may not have the same effects for others.
AssesmentThis blackboard journal project is counted as a part of the daily homework. 1 point will be given for each of your messages. You will receive NO credit for a single-sentence message such as "I agree with you." and "I do the same things." Your message should be well thought out and summarized in a paragraph. Well thought out messages here refer to the kind of messages involving detailed information, thoughtful personal experience, useful suggestions and comments, and that are useful for enhancing other students' understanding of language learning approaches and processes.
RequirementEach student are required to post 2 messages discussing their own language learning experiences and strategies. In discussion 1, Group 1 (students in section A, B, & C) will post original messages, and Group 2 (students in section D, E & F) will reply to the messages posted by Group-1 students. In discussion 2, Group-2 students in turn post original messages, and Group-1 students reply to Group-2 students' messages. You will be expected to post according to the schedule below, but may make additional postings if you wish. You won't receive any credits for your message posted after the deadline.
