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.

Thanks for your patience! Make Cycle 6: Creating Effective Writing Assignments is now posted. Link here too.

Please note that you have a partner for this cycle who will try out the writing activity you create and provide some feedback to you about how it went for them as the writer. You’ve all been good about timing all semester, but just know that it will be crucial that you meet assignment deadlines so that you don’t leave your partner hanging.

First prompts are about assessment (reading Chapter 7 and looking over the Common Core standards in the next week(ish)). I made the chapter 7 response due on Saturday instead of Friday this week since I am late getting things to you.

Finally, I have one final conference this month: giving the Keynote address for the California Association of Teachers of English Yosemite Conference this weekend, along with my colleague Peter Kittle. I may be delayed in email responses this weekend, but will do my best to get back to you as quickly as possible. Remind me not to do three conferences in a four week period again. I look forward to things slowing down a bit after this.

I am thrilled with your multimodal makes that I’ve peeked at so far. Such creative work and I’m glad so many of you took the opportunity to start your professional websites!

Thank you again for your work!

Kim
