Assignments for Week 4

Greetings! I have now set up a stand-alone page for each one of our 16 themes. To access one of these themes, simply select one from the right-hand column of our class blog, under the heading “Pages.”

Once you’ve accessed the page for the theme you’re working on, please use the comment section below your theme(s) to chronicle your progress this week. Specifically, I’d like for you to outline in detail the work that you have done since the last class toward crafting your three podcast proposals. This can include workgroup discussions, supplemental readings, contacting park sites, drafting lists of tangibles/intangibles/universals, etc., as long as you can show how it is moving your project forward. Please post no later than 8:00 a.m. on Friday, so I will have time to review your work before class.

This will also be a standing assignment for the duration of the course.

NOTE: With no mandatory reading assignments this week, (as I mentioned in class) I’m expecting significant progress from each of you. Thanks!

    Ok, so if I understand this right, we should be able to chart our research and progress in an outline form similar to the assignment Greg posted. I put an outline template together that I’ll be using, I’ll post it. Feel free to use it for simplicity sake or if someone come’s up with something better that’d be great!
