Weeks 3 & 4

Weeks 3 & 4

Here is our workflow for weeks and 3 & 4. Let’s try to keep these deadlines, but if you need another day to do the reading, then I completely understand. Let’s definitely try to get all tasks done in a particular week by Sunday so we can stay on a similar pace. Appreciate you all!

Link to Perusall. 

In a nutshell, these are our routines:

    • By Thursdays (or close to that day): 1) Readings in Perusall, 2) post quotes in Currents, 3) respond to fieldnotes partner in Currents
    • By Sundays: post and reflect on your fieldnotes

Week 3: Sept 8-13

By Thursday, Sept 10:

  • Read and comment on Jennie Nelson’s “Reading Classrooms as Text: Exploring Student Writers’ Interpretive Practices.” Comment in Perusall
  • Once you’ve read (this will always be our routine), you’ll do some Quote Gathering:
    • Select a memorable passage or two from the reading. Copy and paste this quote(s)/passage(s) into your Currents area. Then, write, type, or draw your response to what you read (in any length or form) OR write at least two discussion questions/conversation starters. Upload a picture of your drawing or write out your thoughts or questions under your quotes. Our goal is to keep track of the ideas you are reading, noticing patterns of ideas you may be drawn to as you complete the readings. Keeping track of the quotes and your initial thoughts will also help a lot when you go to write the What I Know So Far paper.
  • Comment on your partner’s fieldnotes: this week you might notice how their workshop seems different or similar to your workshop. You might also talk about ways to keep track in these fieldnotes that seem helpful. Then, what did it look like to offer support to freshman? What did the mentor do well?

By Sunday, Sept 13:

  • Post (and offer a short reflection on) your fieldnotes in your area in Currents.

Week 4: Sept 14-20

By Thursday, Sept 17:

  • Read and comment on Nancy Sommers and Laura Saltz’ “The Novice as Expert: Writing the Freshman Year.” Comment in Perusall
  • Once you’ve read (this will always be our routine), you’ll do some Quote Gathering:
    • Select a memorable passage or two from the reading. Copy and paste this quote(s)/passage(s) into your Currents area. Then, write, type, or draw your response to what you read (in any length or form) OR write at least two discussion questions/conversation starters. Upload a picture of your drawing or write out your thoughts or questions under your quotes. Our goal is to keep track of the ideas you are reading, noticing patterns of ideas you may be drawn to as you complete the readings. Keeping track of the quotes and your initial thoughts will also help a lot when you go to write the What I Know So Far paper.
  • Comment on your partner’s fieldnotes. (I’ll add some guiding questions once I see your previous fieldnotes)

By Sunday, Sept 20:

  • Share new fieldnotes and offer a short reflection in your area in Currents.
