I want you to write one solid paragraph for each unit we covered in this course. Each paragraph should –
Highlight the main points (plural) of the unit.
Tell me what you found to be the most useful and important material in the unit and
Why you feel that way.
So, I will be looking for 8 paragraphs. I will give you 5 points per paragraph. That’s 40 points.
For another 10 points I would like for you to write a reflection/evaluation of this course to provide feedback to me, as a teacher.
For our purposes though, I want you to write a reflection on this class. I would like to hear what you liked most and what didn’t work well for you. I would like to know which assignments or lessons were the most interesting, which tools (my videos, youtube videos, TED talks, radio labs, written text, articles, assignments, discussions) you found to be the most engaging and useful. I didn’t grade the discussions as closely as I graded the assignments and those were mainly conversations between you and your classmates to consider the course material from someone else’s perspective- did it do that? Did you find the discussions were interesting when you read the ideas and reflections of your peers? Do we need more content? What I mean is, there isn’t a lot of vocabulary or even a lot of article content to read. When you think of a text book which is 300 pages or so, there is very little course reading material in this class and I am struggling with that. Do you think you learned enough in this class (when compared to other classes in your university experience)? If you were designing this class, what would you do differently?
Keep in mind, that it is not my goal to make an easy class. My goal is to make an information-rich course that engages you, inspires you and forces you to apply the material and to think critically. My goal is to create a class that you think about when you are talking with family and friends, watching tv or driving in the car. Not just a class that you work on when you have to because you have to and then it’s done.
Units 2,3, and 4 were to large. I pulled a specificslly page from each chapter to hopefully help you get a idea what the unit was about to summarize it.
