Week 6 Assignments


This week, you will start doing actual project feedback on the Portfolios and Storybooks. That will be good practice for the feedback strategies you learned about earlier in the semester, and I hope you will enjoy both giving feedback to others while also getting feedback about your own project.


Coming back after the break. This is the first time that I've offered a Week 5 break, but I think the transition into Week 6 should work just fine. Here are some things to keep in mind:

* When you do the Project Feedback assignment, take a look back at the Week 5 information before you begin; I've provided a link for that below.

* If you are doing the Portfolio option for your project and did not write a story in Week 5, it would be a good idea to write a story this week (instead of choosing the Lab option); adding more stories to your blog now gives you more options for developing your Portfolio in the coming weeks.

Here are the Notes guidelines plus all the different Reading Notes Strategies to experiment with. Have you tried any of the formatting strategies? For example, you might try putting your own storytelling ideas in bold so they will just right out at you when you are ready to write your story.

Tuesday due date: READING 

4 points  appx. 1-2 hours 
Wednesday due date: READING  4 points  appx. 1-2 hours 





Thursday due date: STORYTELLING

4 points  appx. 1 hour

The Story Lab option is available again this week! Here's how that works: Week 6 Story Lab OR Story. You can write a story OR you could do one of those Story Lab options. For those of you working on a Storybook as your project, you will see there are some specific Story Lab options that you can choose from, such as using this assignment to do some Storybook reading/research.







Here are the final assignments for the week:



8 points  appx. 60-90 min.

Check for the last email you received from me about your project; you will find the link you need for this week's assignment in that email. If you need me to send you the email again, just let me know! To see the project assignments for the whole semester, visit the Project Overview page.

PROJECT FEEDBACK 6 points 45 min. - 1 hour

First: if you took Week 5 off, take a look at the Week 5 Feedback page; it has some suggestions for feedback strategies you might want to explore. You don't need to do the assignment, but read through the page so you'll know what was covered.

Then, you will start commenting on people's actual projects; here are the instructions: Week 6 Project Feedback. Starting this week, you will be looking at three different projects and leaving detailed feedback that people can use as they revise and develop their project. Make sure you budget enough time for that; because of the more detailed feedback, this assignment will take more time each week than the blog commenting does.

BLOG COMMENTS 4 points 30 min. - 45 min.

Here is a link to the assignment: Blog Comments. You can decide what works better for you: to do the blog commenting before the feedback assignment, or after; whether to do it at the same time or at different times, etc. For the rest of the semester, you will be commenting on both projects and on blog posts every week, so you'll want to figure out the best routine for that, based on your personal preferences.





Have you missed some assignments in previous weeks? If so, do some extra credit to make up for those points you missed. You can use this Progress Chart to see if you are on track for the grade you want. See Week 2 Extra Credit for details.


You can do these extra credit options any time during the week.

Extra Reading. Make up missed reading or explore new topics in your class: Myth-Folklore or Indian Epics.
