I hope you are having wonderful Spring breaks. I’m excited to hear about your adventures, far-flung and near-flung, when I return. I’m headed off to La Pietra tomorrow and will arrive there just as you are returning to NYC. I wanted to write about the plan for the week I’m away, and for the following week.
Next week, as we discussed, I’d like you guys to meet during our scheduled sessions to work together to revise the Keywords/Keytools Wiki. Let’s use Annie’s suggestion as the homework for Monday: Take a pass through the document and add your comments along the way. You can comment with an eye towards clarity, amplification, disagreement, adding useful examples or illustrations. It’s MORE THAN OKAY for the wiki to reflect shades of different meaning or understanding or continued places of confusion. In other words, you are revising for juiciness, usefulness, and texture not for consensus or flatland.
For the Monday, March 26, when I return please watch this film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeCIlgUeYlM&noredirect=1
I’ll screen Pepe: Secondhand in class Monday.
For the blog for March 26, please react to the film and make some discussion questions.
Also, I’ve just started blogging for the visionary “green” fashion designer, Natalie Chanin. Here’s my first post!: http://alabamachanin.com/journal/2012/03/the-heart-better-joys/#more-15574 Let me know what you think. xjessamyn
