Here’s what’s on tap this semester, week by week. A version of this is on the syllabus but this one has live links and will be easier to reference during class. How to read/use this map:

  • Week of: This is the Sunday of that week
  • How to Prepare: What to read/watch/do, if any, before that week’s class
  • What to Submit: What to turn in, if any, by Wednesday 11:59:59.999pm of that week (unless otherwise indicated)
    • indicates a Brightspace submission
    • indicates an email submission
    • Some assignments have both
  • What We’ll Do: Activity/material/content during that week’s class

Week of August 25

  • What We’ll Do: Introduction to the course; start looking for a mentor

Week of September 1

  • How to Prepare: identify/contact potential mentors

N.B. You have around one month from the first deliverable (“reading party” video) before the first truly big one is due (annotated bibliography). However, the next sizable deliverables (proposal draft, presentation draft) are then due two weeks apart after the annotated bibliography. After those, you will have around one month before the final proposal and presentation are due.

The upshot: the course work ramps up closer to the middle of the semester rather than the end. Plan your time accordingly. You will want to be primarily in “refinement mode” by the middle of November.
