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.

Hi everyone,

(Really hoping you get the Spinal Tap reference in the post title..or maybe I’m just too old.)

Just wanted to check in to say that grade updates were just sent. I really enjoyed reading your responses to your graphic novels; it is so cool to see how many of you are seeing the value of these texts now that you’ve looked at resources and are enjoying reading your own graphic novel book choice. You’ll choose a different question for your response on Wednesday and then I hope you’ll try your hand at a comic for this make cycle! We’ll get started with your YA novels as we head into Thanksgiving break and I hope you’ll make some reading plans (Miller’s chapter 4 is great for thinking about this) for break.

For fun, and in the fall spirit, I came across this great set of resources for teaching about Halloween and Day of the Dead: Link HERE
PLEASE VOTE tomorrow! Public education needs you!
Happy Monday
