Due Before Class:
- If possible, register with Scalar. When you are registered, I can add you to the project.
- The author page I'd like you to create by the next class is fairly easy: once you are in our Scalar project, you will automatically have a Bio page. Just add your name to it and as we go through the semester, link all your contributions there.
- For the weekly reflection, focus on one aspect of the reading an think how you can create an open access resources (basically a digital resource not behind a paywall - the "projects to browse" section of our reading can give you ideas), lesson plan, or ideas for further research. If you have access to Scalar, start a new page and paste your response there. Then link it to your author page.
