Make Cycles

Our course is organized by “make cycles,” a term I borrow from Connected Learning. You can find the 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.

Heading in to Week 3

Hello nice people of English 333!

Your makes are looking so so good! Thank you to so many of you who are trying out the Storyjumper site and some of you are writing such adorable poems; bravo. Friendly reminder that the makes are due tonight and remember to talk about the process when you share your make (who you decided to approach the assignment the way you did, what worked, what was challenging). Finally, make sure you are responding to at least one of your peers when you post. Thank you!

Make Cycle 2 is now up on the site; you can always find this under the Make Cycles tab. And link here. We’ll be looking more closely at storytelling and starting to read in our About the Authors book, which I think you’ll like a lot. The authors have so many amazing examples from kids. You have posts due Wednesday & Sunday, which will typically be the routine throughout the semester.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ—> I assigned people to the “Featured Curators” assignment for the semester. Please look for your name listed by a make cycle under the Featured Curators assignment. I am about to send an email to Marc, Krystina, Megan, Krystle, and Rebecca next hoping that you’ll be willing to go first! I’ll send further instructions in that email. Everyone should look over the assignment and watch for an email for me during your make cycle with more information. You can find lots of examples from last semester on our course website. Like this one. 

I’ll give more feedback tomorrow and Tuesday and plan to send your first grade update by Tuesday afternoon. I send grade updates to your Wildcat email and I’ll send everyone a head’s up that grades are sent so you can check your email.

Really grateful for the thinking you are doing already and the conversations you’re having with your peers.

This information was also sent to your email: please let me know that you’re reading the email updates by CLICKING HERETHANK YOU!
