Weekly Video Updates

Make Cycles

Our course is organized by two week “make cycles,” a term I borrow from Connected Learning. We will read, discuss, and write based on the mentor texts we’re reading. You can find the weekly tasks for each cycle in the drop down menu above.

Google+ Community

We will share most of our work in a Google+ Community. We will upload images, respond to each other’s ideas, and share links and “makes” here. Peter Kittle’s class will be joining us too.

Week 3 Update

Week 3 Update

Here is your weekly Friday update heading in to week 3 and Make Cycle 2! Thank you so much for the work you’ve done so far. Really enjoying reading your poems and seeing your Little Bird Tales! Please remember that your make is due tonight (Sept 1) for Make Cycle 1. And say something nice to another person! Peter Kittle’s class is sharing their makes too, so the Make Cycle 1 category on G+ is hopping.

I sent a link to your email yesterday asking you to please let me know if you have the About the Authors book. You have some work with the book this upcoming week.**Honestly, it’s freaking me out a bit that only half of you have clicked on this link. If you’re taking on an online class, you should really be checking email every day.

We are moving into two weeks of thinking about storytelling: why we tell stories, how we generate ideas for stories, and how we might write our own stories. You’ll see the Make Cycle 2 Page has been added in the drop down menu under Make Cycles.

Finally, I’ve archived the videos and the instructions for Make Cycle 1.

Hope you’re staying out of this heat and smoke for the labor day weekend! And thank you again for the incredibly thoughtful work you’re doing.
