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.

Campus closures and local fires

Campus closures and local fires

Hi everyone,

My heart goes out to everyone who is impacted by the fires raging in Paradise and our surrounding community. My hope is that you and your families who are local are all safe. While my parents have most likely lost their home, I am so grateful that they evacuated safely and that I am surrounded by family. It has been absolutely surreal and scary.

Please know that I am absolutely supportive of any student who may be impacted by the fires. I have extended the deadline for the Make that is due on Sunday  to when we return from Thanksgiving break. If you can, go ahead and complete the assignment as originally scheduled for Nov 11. But if this is a hardship, then try to complete the graphic novel Make by Nov 26.

Additionally, I’ve decided NOT to post any additional assignments next week until we return on Nov 26. If you can, please read your YA novel(Ready Player One, Eleanor & Park, Bone Gap, The Hate U Give, OR We Are Okay) and we’ll work with those after break (you can plan that we’ll write about Miller chapter 4 and do a character analysis from our YA novels when we return). I am also, of course, willing to work on a case by case basis to complete assignments. Your first priority should be your wellness and your families and friends.

Take good care of each other. Thinking all the good thoughts for our community. Please feel free to reach out if you need anything.
