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.

As I mentioned in the Welcome video for our course and the assignments page, I’ve organized this class around a series of “make cycles.” After this welcome week, we will work with children’s books in two week cycles, starting with fairy tales in weeks 2 and 3.

I will add the new make cycle on Friday evenings at the end of a cycle, so you can expect to see Make Cycle 2 posted on Friday, Sept 8 and then a new cycle shared every other Friday after that. They will appear in the drop down menu at the top of our course site under Weekly Work.

Again, you can find the links in the drop down menu above, but here are the links below too:

Here is the link to Week 1 (Introductions)

Here is the link to Make Cycle 1: Weeks 2 & 3 (Fairytales)

Here is the link to Make Cycle 2: Weeks 4 & 5 (Series Books)

As I add new weeks to the drop down menu, I will archive the previous weeks’ cycles on this main page.

VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE order all your books asap. I know it’s tempting to order as you go, but often students order them used and then it takes a month to get them. Please have them ordered, so they can be ready to go for the semester, by the end of the first week of our class.
