Visit by Hester Eleanor Prynne - Sofia's bunny. The Tipping Point - we'll discuss in an unusual way by asking the question - can "big ideas" tip? Let's start with something we haven't talked about before in class - "going green." Has that tipped already? If not, what would it take to make it tip? Then let's turn to the issues the class has taken up over the semester. What would it take for some big idea about that to tip?

Since this is the last class session we will try to wrap up on the class project, discuss any deliverables and then ask a different question. Is there a coherent theme to what we've talked about and done? Does the course "make sense" as a way of thinking about the issues? Also, should it be offered again and if so with what modifications? We need to save some time for the written evaluations.

This is a self-critique on your blogging for the semester. In it please identify the posts you want to included in your portfolio. (One from the first three weeks, another from the next three weeks, and then two other posts that signify your best west work.) Explain why you choose each and then talk about your own learning as a writer/blogger as well as aspirations you might have in this domain beyond the course. Please consult the post in the Syllabus that explains the rubric for evaluating the reflections.
