Topic to be covered in class
Moodle response item
1) Office Visit (Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday)
First, a reminder that class does not meet on Wednesday. In order to get credit for Wednesday’s class, you must sign up for, attend, and participate actively during a 10-minute meeting in my office (403 St. Joseph Hall). During that meeting, I will give you feedback on the discovery draft paper you uploaded to Turnitin.com, and I will give you credit for Wednesday’s class.
Sign up now for your office visit ; slots are available on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The gray boxes are open slots; they will fill in as blue when the slots are taken.)
(Clicking the link will take you to my Google Calendar page, where you can click on a button and add yourself to my calendar. There are more than enough slots for everyone in the class. If you wish, you can sign up during Monday’s class.)
2) Readings 2-3 and 2-4
You will pick two of the following three readings.
- Postman, “Television as Teacher” (421-430)
- Johnson, “Why Games are Good for You” (481-494)
- Teare, “Harry Potter and the Technology of Magic” (548-562)
It doesn’t matter which one you choose as “2-3″ and which you choose as “2-4″ — you’ll be evaluated once, on your response to both.
