REQUIREMENTS

These are the things everyone is responsible for completing…

Weekly Requirements

Welcome to another wonderful week on the trail. With no school on Friday (Yeeeeehawww!!!), this week is going to be a little wonky. Specifically, we are going to shift Conferences as follows…

  • If your conference is typically on Wednesday, it will be today.
  • If your conference is typically on Friday, it will be on Wednesday.
  • Times are posted on the board

This week, you’re going to complete the following:

  1. ADVENTURE: Put your top strength in your profile
  2. Publish your DPU
  3. Continue exploring your content area
  4. Weekly Conference
    • Per the above

PLEASE REMEMBER:

As a capable, respected member of this learning community, you are expected to get right to work. If you don’t understand something, your process should look something like this…

  1. Go back to the online resources here in The Narrows that might help you understand what you’re confused about. Read/watch/take notes with the intention of understanding.
    • Please don’t expect others to help you if you haven’t first done your best to figure things out on your own.
    • As the Swedish proverb suggests, “The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm.”
  2. Find a class-mate who knows how to do what you’re unsure about, and ask them for help.
    • *IF* you are the person someone asks for help, and you provide that help, please ping me on Basecamp and let me know exactly how you served your classmate(s). As you surely recall, in The Narrows, we value service to others.
  3. If you’re still confused, please see the Guide.
    • The Guide is here to help, but he’s not here as a crutch. If he bails you out by answering every question you have (questions that you should know the answers to already), he’s doing you a disservice. He’s teaching you that you’re not capable of taking control of your own learning. And you are. So he’ll expect you to behave accordingly, and he’ll only help when he see’s that you’re truly struggling to improve yourself, and to do the very hard work that learning and growing require.

Your required tasks are below.


ADVENTURE: Strength in Profile


PUBLISH YOUR DPU
Below are a few reminders about your DPU

  • Remember to read the Guide’s feedback from last week and MAKE THE NECESSARY IMPROVEMENTS for this week.
  • Again, consider reading the DPU Tutorial to get super clear on what is expected in each section.

ENGAGE IN YOUR CONTENT AREA
This will either be developing your inquiry OR going through the Coursera course you’ve chosen.

A much deserved day of rest. Put your feet up friends and enjoy a little R & R.

OPTIONAL

These are the extra things you may choose to do throughout the week if you like.

The following are things you may choose to do for additional miles (MI) as well as capital (C) – not to mention to grow and learn and become better. Sometimes these optional items will relate directly to the work you’re doing, other times they will be random. Either way, they represent things the Guide feels are worth your time. As always, though, the required items above are the priority. Feel free to do these on your own time as well.
