Review your own blog posts. Which one is your favorite post, the one you are most proud of; the one that you could even show to friends and other teachers? Why? Which post is your least favorite, or least successful post and why? What could you do to improve it? Which post did you have the most trouble writing? Which post is the one that you learned the from the most?
The blog I am most proud of is my introduction post where I had describe my best friend. This blog was easy for me to right but mainly the reason I like it so much is because I wrote it because it was important to me. Honestly most of my posts this year were just to get it done. But this post I found that I had fun doing because I was writing about something I truly care for. My worst post/ one I disliked the most was the Chemical Castration. The information was interesting but I just could not seem to get my point across the way I wanted to and without more vivid or detailed examples our responses were all speculation on certain crimes that we imagined, making our responses look strange to others. The post I learned the most from was definitely the Glow Fish. I love animals but fish were just simple minded creatures to me. Today when I went to feed my fish I thought he was dead and I was actually distraught for a moment until I saw him swimming again. I guess when I wrote the post about his close encounter I learned that I had learned to love a creature that shows nothing but content.

Question 2: What was the most interesting thing you learned in this course? (It could be something about a particular philosophy or position, and/or it could be something you learned about yourself). How do you know that you learned it? What will you do with that knowledge in the future? (Could it be applied to other courses you will take, your job or generally in your life?)
I learned that happiness is truly in the eye of the beholder. We all experience happiness but everyone has a different idea of happiness. I know I have learned it from the readings and analyzing people and observing the things that make them happy; things that would drive me insane. I will use this knowledge as I develop more relationships in my life. I will learn to better understand the other side of the coin and see the other perspective in ways that I never knew before.
Question 3: If you were teaching this course, how would you teach it? What topics would you include for sure, what topics would you drop? What else, what other themes and topics, in addition to what we discussed here, could be part of this course? And, would you recommend this course to other students? Why or why not – please explain.
I would teach just as you had. You gave us plenty of information without it seeming like a workload and gave us many chances to express ourselves in a world where your opinion does not matter, only facts. I can’t imagine dropping a topic, but editing the castration topic to include actual specific examples. I would recommend this to other students because this class was the most stress free class I have ever had and it stimulated my mind.
FINALLY: Anything else you want to add, and complete your post with a representative image of your learning or of closure.
