By Friday at 5:00: Two (2) of your annotations for the annotated bibliography. This will give me a chance to give folks feedback on their writing before you workshop it in class, and it will help you get the work of the class done.
Looking for the annotation guidelines and sample? You can access it from the drop down menu for our class (all the way at the bottom, to the right of the "Research in Teaching Diverse Populations" page. Or you can click here.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
ON MONDAY: please have read your section of Asou Inoue. I made a mistake in class and forgot chapter one. If you were not in class on Monday when we divvied up the remainder of the Asou Inoue text, you are responsible for reading CHAPTER ONE. The rest of the folks should read the chapter they were assigned (randomly) in class. So Chapter 2, 3, or 4. Everyone reads Five. One journal for your two chapters. You'll have time in class to talk with the other folks who read your chapter and then we will have a class discussion among all the chapters.
One reason I moved this assignment is because Inoue is important, and I don't want to miss the opportunity to read and discuss him with you. Everyone is reading Five.
ONE FURTHER NOTE: Because the Inoue is substantial reading (both a lot of it and not easy), I’m moving the assignment originally due on Monday. I’ve tried to spread out the work so that no one day bears the burden of making up for all the other weeks; do keep in mind that Kittle is a very easy read.
FINALLY: Be on the lookout for an email from me with your midterm check in grade letter.
Most of all, remember what I said in class on Monday. Take care of yourself. Take care of each other. And know that between being annoyed with you or you feeling like you have someone to turn to, I will pick being annoyed with you every single time. So please remember that there is at least one person on this campus who will help as best she can.
Have a restful holiday. I am grateful for many things, all of you among them.
