I don’t post [short articles] on the course website because it’s a pain having to move them every year, and I want more than just the students in my class to be able to see them. There is sometimes a student who complains about having to click to a website… life is harsh right? I can also write a whole series of posts on a particular topic, and I am not constrained by the notions of what journal articles want you to write.
