Make the students read the stories aloud & in the first part of class, with your lecture/ discussion after.
Have a cheesy smelly Hefner-esque robe on a chair in the corner & have the class vote on whose cheesy chick-a-bow-wow story earns them the “honor” of wearing of the robe for the rest of the 90 minutes.
Or even better…have the class hold the worst offenders down while you change their ringtones to this.
About some students possibly being offended: What I tell my students is that because they’re attending a state college, and submitting their work (on-line) to a computer that is owned by and paid for by the state, they must not submit anything embarrassing that could land on the front page of a newspaper. That, and talking about the Student Handbook and Code of Conduct, seems to encourage the students to self censor.
Although there was a case of “cow-porn” submitted by a student as a paper on cattle breeding, complete with pictures of cows doing it, well, cow style. It was more funny than offensive.
It maybe be enough of a catch-22. People with an interesting sex-life might just be too busy to write, And the people bored enough to take a class, about it might not have anything interesting in their sex life to write about.
You’re the boss-- just tell the little JHS-caliber scumbags no sex, as in sexual topics strictly forbidden.
I understand a college campus must be crawling with moonbeam/libertarian types sure to howl
“censership!” “fashist!” (their spelling). All the more reason for someone who cares about academic
quality assurance and quality control to take a stand.
