Julie Trachman, Associate Professor, Natural Sciences, Hostos Community College


Several permutations of a blog assignment have been used in a writing intensive microbiology course, mainly taken by Allied Health Sciences students. The blog assignment, based on real-life scenarios, is performed near the course end and is scaffolded to help students process the course information so as to give it more coherence and context. These assignments are designed with the aim of making the students better health practitioners when they finish their studies and make it also possible for students to become effective at reaching out to their communities on health issues even while they are Hostos students.
