Weekly Video Update

Make Cycles

Our course is organized by two week “make cycles,” a term I borrow from Connected Learning. We will read, discuss, and make things based on the children’s books we’re reading. You can find the “weekly work” for each cycle in the drop down menu above.

Google+ Community

We will share most of our work in a Google+ Community. We can upload images, respond to each other’s ideas, and share links and artifacts here.

Week 5 Update

Week 5 Update

This week (Sept 18-24):

  • Response due by Wednesday about your series book (which you should also finish by then). You’ll talk about how you might use the series in your future classroom. Post under Week 5: Series Book prep in G+
  • Review of your series book due on Goodreads by Friday. You can totally copy and paste from your series response this week. The review should help your future teacher self remember the book. This should take 10 minutes.
  • Make due on Sunday! Don’t wait until the last minute to come up with the idea for how you want to share your book with everyone! Remember, your make does not need to be digital. You can always share a picture with us. For example, one semester, a student made a doll for the book Doll Bones, which was pretty awesome. Again, your make should get people excited about the book, share a theme, a character, or help you think through ideas. Movie poster, book trailer, lesson plan, a game, an artifact, a website, a song, etc
