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

Tuesday, April 23

Today, we will be doing a post-mortem on our field trip. The first thing will be a slide show that Loan and Ruben will choose from pictures that you mail 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.

The next thing will be my summary of the posts that you make by 7:00 a.m today 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.

The third thing will be a discussion of the essay assignments that are due on Monday, April 29, since you will be in the middle of writing your essays.

Thursday, April 25
