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 12 Reminders

Week 12 Reminders

Make Cycle 6 is ready to roll. Link here (and above on the site, of course). Response to Miller chapter 4 due this Thursday, Nov 9 (Friday is a holiday). A response to your YA novel is next Tuesday, plus the last Goodreads review and a Make by Nov 17.

Also, you might notice that I moved some of your posts to another category in G+. Turns out you can only have 20 categories, so I needed to combine a few from previous weeks. We should be all set now.

Looking ahead: after Make 6, we have Thanksgiving break (yay!) and then our last Make Cycle 7. We’ll think about remix and read Battle Bunny, which is one of my favorite kids’ books. We’ll end the semester with a writing assignment–a reading manifesto and reflection–and do some prep for that assignment as part of Make Cycle 7 when we return from break. One way to prep for that assignment is to look back over all your work and G+ posts and pull out ideas you want to talk about in the reflection. You can see this assignment and examples under the Assignments tab on our site.

Thanks again for the graphic novel work!
