Commenting on Other Students' Posts

Talking with a colleague over lunch today, it occurred to me that I may not have fully understood what students were asking about commenting on other students posts.

So let me say something about the length of the comment, which I did not remark on in class.  One decent paragraph should suffice.  Your comments don't have to be as long as mine.  One short sentence is not sufficient.  I am not going to do a word minimum like with the blog posts themselves. I hope there enough here to address that concern.

Your big picture goal in offering up a comment is to help make the students next post better.  I am not going to try to measure on delivery of that goal, but that is what you are aiming for.
