Make Cycles

Make Cycles

Our course is organized by two week “make cycles,” a term I borrow from Connected Learning. We’ll spend two weeks in each make cycle focused on an aspect of literacy studies. Each of these make cycles follow routines for our work together: discovering, reading, writing, and making.

I’ll release the full descriptions for assignments and activities every two weeks. You can find the full descriptions linked here once they’re released and in a drop down menu from the Make Cycle page tab above.

  • Getting Situated: Pre- Make Cycle (Aug 24-30; week 1)
  • Make Cycle 1: Our Literate Selves (Aug 31 – Sept 13; weeks 2 & 3)
  • Make Cycle 2: Our Quantified Selves (Sept 14 – 27; weeks 4 & 5)
  • Make Cycle 3: Our Literacy Sponsors (Sept 28 – Oct 11; weeks 6 & 7)
  • Make Cycle 4: Our Languages & Literacies as Multilingual (Oct 12 – 25; weeks 8 & 9)
