Week 3 updates and reminders

Week 3 updates and reminders

Hi everyone,

Hope week 3 is starting to feel a bit more in the groove as you make sense of all your classes and new, perhaps a bit strange, work flow. I appreciate how y’all are trying to figure this out.

Make sure you commented/participated in the Perusall reading that was due last night (“The Skin We Ink…”). Lots of great comments and discussion there; thank you!

This week you have some writing (Friday) and a Make due (Sunday). You can find the information on the Make Cycle 1 page in the menu above.

Please please please look over the two student examples I have at the end of the Write instructions from Charlotte and Hannah. They are really thoughtful, but importantly, you should notice that those examples are only responding to question 2 and they are really in depth; you are also talking about the reading (question 1) and comparing the data with your peers (question 3) so yours will be even longer. I would expect a couple of pages and it will take at least an hour. Try to push here to make sense of your literacy tracings. I hope those student examples are helpful to you. You can either post the writing directly into your post in Currents or link to a Google Doc in your post.

With the Make for Sunday: many of you may want to try out the playlist option for the Make. Keep in mind: not a random playlist, but one that reflects the ideas of the class for the last two weeks. The Make is a way for you to have total control over the way you share what you’ve learned in the past two weeks in our class. So, instead of a quiz to show what you know, you’re making something to represent what you’ve learned. How might you represent your literacy tracing, for example? What might it look like as a poem? A work of art? A blog?

I look forward to seeing what you write and make!

Thank you everyone again for the discussion on the reading.
