Activities for Week 4: Reflecting on the field trip and the way forward

Tuesday, April 19

Today, we will be doing a post-mortem on our field trip. The first thing will be a slide show that two volunteers will choose from pictures that you send to them by 5 p.m. on Monday, the 18th. If you take pictures on the trip, please send them up to 20 pictures, in format small enough not to overflow their email inboxes. Or if the volunteers would like to use a different medium for sharing; that's fine, as long as it ends up a nice slide show, with comments on the significance of the pictures.

The next thing will be my summary of the posts that you make by midnight on the 18th regarding the field trip. I will extract important points made in answer to the questions we prepared beforehand and asked on the trip, and we will have a general discussion about these points.

Thursday, April 21

For the first hour, we will have a discussion of the essay assignments that are due on Monday, April 25, since you will be in the middle of writing your essays, and this is the first one you will be doing.

For the second hour, Katie Moore-Drougas will speak on the possibilities of renewable biomass in toward mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and thus global climate change. In preparation for her session, please first read a policy paper she co-authored with Dan Schwartz (UW), Laurel James (Yakama Nation and UW), and Jim Durglo (Confederated Salish Kootenai Tribes), and by 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20, please post two questions that you would like Katie to discuss in class.
