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 13 Reminders

Week 13 Reminders

Hi all,

Please remember that your posting your writing and response to your partner as a comment under their original assignment description. You can create the response/activity in a Google Doc and share a link too as a comment to your partner’s post. Make sure the share settings are set to “anyone can view.”

Also, make sure you’ve at least checked out your partner’s plan so you can clarify any confusion with your partner before the assignment is due Tuesday.

Here is a great example of what we’re doing from Alice and Sophie. Both the activity description from Alice and Sophie’s response are great models for this make cycle.

Writing and response to partner’s activity due Tuesday. Don’t be late since you all can’t write your reflections on the assignment until the writing partner has completed the partner’s assignment. If you both get your response done early, then you could write your reflection and be on break for our class (with the exception of the featured bloggers). Just sayin…

FEATURED BLOGGERS (Karla, Amanda, Jessica G, Hannah, Shannon, and Alison): I hope you will write up your blogs before you leave for break. See email from Nov 2 from me.

The last Make Cycle (which takes us to final’s week) will be posted Sunday night or Monday morning after break (Nov 26 or 27). I know we’ll read chapter 8 and Appendix K from About the Authors and you’ll be revising one of your Makes from this semester, so if you wanted to get ahead, you could read and think about which make you might want to return to as part of the Manifesto assignment.
