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.

Week 7 update

Week 7 update

Hi everyone,

The Makes for Engaging Expositions are looking great (due tonight, Oct 7)! You have some adorable ABC books on the G+ community…great fall themes too. I continue to appreciate the work you are all doing in thinking about the teaching of writing and taking some risks with your own writing.

finally have the blogs up from our featured Curators for Make Cycle 2. So many of you are featured in their blogsso be sure to check it out on our site: LINK HERE. Thank you McKenzie, Suzy, Miriam, Giselle, Daniela, and Keith for highlighting all the great work with storytelling from your peers.  Up next week for Make Cycle 3 featured curators are Alyssa Dettloff, Kendall Eagleton, Estefani Galarza, Bertha Gallardo, and Laurence Gammell. I sent you all an email earlier, so be sure to look that over and let me know if you have questions. (Remember everyone: you can find your assigned Make Cycle for the featured curator assignment on the Assignments page. One time only assignment.)

I sent a grade update a few days ago to your Wildcat mail; I’ll send another in about a week. Thank you for continuing to give feedback to your peers; building a writing community is really important to the work we’re doing as future educators. Remember to respond to someone each time when you post your own response. 😉

Make Cycle 4 (Compelling Arguments) is now live: Link HERE. You’ll probably be happy to see that I slowed the pace down just a bit this week so everyone can take a breath (you’ve been working so hard in this class; thank you!): your next response is due in a week (Oct 14), so no Wednesday response this week. Slightly more reading, but one less response. I do expect you’ll write a meaty response by next Sunday since you’re working with a couple of chapters–4 & 5 plus Appendix E–from About the Authors.

Happy Sunday!
