College students blog posts on video game violence

gradesLast year, google alert sent me blog posts from undergrad students from the University of Oregon. I commented on some students on their take of the topic, which is of course video game violence.

This year, I stumbled upon college students from Brookdale Community College. Again, on video game violence (prof’s class assignment post). I read their posts, some are good, some are one-sided, some can’t differentiate “there, their, and they’re”, one even used Fox News as a reference, and some use colour schemes that makes reading a pain. I would want to grade their posts based on how good their arguments are, their use of references and their fact-finding skills, but I’ve got important things to do.

There are two thoughts that runs through all the posts: everyone should know better and they should be aware of misinformation on the internet.
