Formative assessment will take place as a three-step scaffolded process. Step 1 comprises the collaborative online annotation of a primary source within small teams of 3-4 students. Step 2 comprises individual blogging of ca. 500 words on a theme/keyword/concept that emerged from Step 1, and a response/comment of ca. 250 words on the blog of a peer. Step 3 involves the recording of a short presentation (ca. 5-7 minutes) developing the blog post into a concrete and specific argument, referencing at least two secondary sources in addition to the primary source(s) already considered.
