Reminders for Week 3 & 4

Reminders for Week 3 & 4

Hi everyone,
Thanks for trying out the lists and exquisite corpse writing yesterday. As promised, here are some reminders:

Discussion post due Sunday night (take aways from Chapter 1 from About the Authors and a couple of your lists and why you shared those lists). Full description of prompts on the Make Cycle 2 page here. Post in the category “Chapter 1 & Lists (sept 15)” in our G+ community.

For Monday, read The Dot, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good…, and the Mysteries of Harris Burdick plus Ashley’s story. You can find links to these texts on the Make Cycle 2 page as well. We’ll use these as our mentor texts for storytelling this week. And, we’ll try our hand at writing our own story from one of the images in Burdick’s book just like Ashley.

Have a nice weekend. See you Monday
Reminders for Week 2

Reminders for Week 2

Hello cool people of English 333,
Here are some reminders as we head into the weekend and week 2:
  • BOOK: Order our book, About the Authors, if you haven’t already (you’ll need it by the end of next week).
  • RESPONSE DUE: Introduction and response about literacies due by Monday night in G+. You can find the prompts and link to G+ on our Make Cycle 1 page
    • Respond to a peer’s post. You’ll always post one, then respond to one.
  • WATCH/READ: For Wednesday’s class, read Chrysanthemum, second daughter’s second day, and a girl named jack. Again, link to these readings/videos on the Make Cycle 1 page. We will use these as mentor texts to prep for your first “make” next week.
Have a great weekend!
