Week 5

1.   Read your peers’ Log #7 in CIDocs and leave comments for each of the peers in your peer group:
  • Go to the log folder and click on your peer’s log. Everyone in the class has access to everyone’s documents.
  • Leave comments by using what is called the 2 stars and one wish approach. Stars are positive – leave 2 positive comments; a wish is an improvement you would like to see or in this case, a helpful idea you want to share with your peer – leave 1 improvement comment. 
  • Revise your list as you feel necessary now that you have read others and received feedback. Again, I want to remind you that the list will be important to your You Ought to Know projects.
2.   Read your peers’ introduction to Making a Difference project and leave comments for each of the peers in your peer group:
  • Go to the Making a Difference folder in CI Docs and click on your peer’s draft.
  • Leave comments by using what is called the 2 stars and one wish approach. Stars are positive – leave 2 positive comments; a wish is an improvement you would like to see or in this case, a helpful idea you want to share with your peer – leave 1 improvement comment. 
  • Later in the semester, you will be asked to give a more critical reading of this project, but for now, look at the big picture and help move your peers along.
3.   Making a Difference Background and Rationale due

Background and Rationale description: 

Describe the work (research) that others have done on this problem/topic or in something related to the topic. (Note: Describe and cite the research you conducted during Week 3. While not required at this time, you might want to begin a Works Cited section now.)

Discuss your interest in and any experience you have that would make you a suitable researcher for the project. In particular, note your knowledge of your major.

Length: 

The longest section of the proposal. Aim for 750 words for the background and 250 words for the rationale for this draft. This section should be a full page, single-spaced.

Where to post your background and rationale:

Post the background and rationale in CIDocs directly following your introduction from last week.

Note: You Ought to Know web page draft will be due next week. If you have extra time, look at next week’s agenda for tips and get started on your web page draft.

All work is due Friday at 9 AM Pacific Daylight Time.
