Use this space to post your "in-class" writing"
Having watched and responded to the TED Talk in the first post of today's asynchronous/online class, I'm asking you to respond to what it says a little more personally.
In about 300 words, respond to the following question: What are your "multipotentialite" super powers? What are you prepared to do about them?
We tend to think that if you can't get make a direct link from a college degree to a profession (like doctor, teacher, cop, etc), that somehow a major or any experience really is sort of a waste. This TED talk suggests that's short-sighted. So, as you answer the above question, you might think about what your major is and if that is the major you want it to be. You might think about what you are good at that isn't school related and how those skills might be put to use during your college career--and beyond? What are you passionate about and how can that passion be a part of your education and future career?
Again, this only needs to be about 300 words, HOWEVER: In addition to your initial post, please read and respond to what your colleagues have to say. Respond to as many people as you want, but you must respond to at least two people by connecting to them in some way: a superpower you see you both having/a superpower they wrote about that reminds you of something you are good at/a superpower someone wrote about that you wish you had and why/how you think this person's superpower could help them (maybe in ways the writer doesn't seem to realize). Responses need only be about 100 words--unless you have a lot to say to your colleagues.
