Budding Sociologists tackle the laoagcentralissue

Young Ilocano Sociologists at work

INSTEAD of submitting tired academic papers, my students in Sociology of Development are working on a blog (http://laoagcentralissue.wordpress.com).

Using the sociological lens, the blog tackles the complex issues that surround the construction of a mall in downtown Laoag.

My students’ zest in posting entries there is fueled not only of their aspirations for high marks, but more so of their desire to generate intelligent and enlightened discussion on the implications of the mall project to development.

Incidentally, have you voted in the online poll I am conducting?

Latest results show 78% of voters saying NO to the mall project with a mere 22% voting YES.
