Weekly Requirements

No need to dilly-dally, right? Let’s get right to work [go_get_displayname].

The agenda for the week is as follows…

  1. Publish your DPU (Due Monday)
  2. Continue exploring your content area
    • Check Basecamp every day. You should all have some goals/deadlines that I Pinged you with.
    • Strive to hit those goals and stay on track.
  3. Global Nomads continues for those involved

You have one, very important required tasks today.

As usual, done over at the Vista PLA site. Please be sure to use the new template. One thing to add – once you’ve loaded that template, toward the top right of the screen, it says ‘Divi Post Settings’. Under Page Layout, please click the drop down menu and choose “Full Width”.


  • The Demonstration of Learning section is critical, and it’s where the bulk of your grade, and growth, comes from.
  • You must use the paragraph organization we’ve discussed in class. See HERE for a reminder.
  • If you’re not including 4 + paragraphs in this section, you’re not doing your job. We’re talking about 2 weeks of work – 8-10 hours of learning.
  • Remember, a portfolio is intended to show a viewer what you’re capable of, and how you’ve grown. You can’t do that in a few sentences.

If you finish your DPU with time to spare, please continue developing your content areas. But first, go back and read that 3rd bullet point above. Do you really have 4+ well organized paragraphs?

Your required tasks are below.

You should be hyper-focused on your goals/deadlines that we discussed. Please check the Ping I sent you last week in Basecamp and strive to achieve these goals/hit these deadlines.

For those involved, please click on the GNG tab (next to the Friday tab) and get started on that first. We’ll PROBABLY gather as a group to do some work together, but we have a short period so we’ll see.


Hello friends, a couple of quick reminders.

  1. Check your email for feedback on your DPUs.
  2. Check Basecamp. Every. Day….seriously.
  3. For those doing an inquiry, please remember you will, eventually, need to answer your EQ. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE of what I’m expecting. Read it in good health.
  4. Be good. For real.

Your required tasks are below.

Again, GOALS people. Get focused on the deadlines, create a plan and get to work straight away.

Greetings. We’re beginning our work on Lesson 4 this week. Naturally, you all have your student guides to the Campfire: Our Stories, Global Perspectives program, but I’ve described the flow of our work this week below…

Guiding Question for this week:

How doe media and information sources impact the way I see the world?

Learning Objective:

Students will be able to think critically about how media and information sources impact the way they see the world; they can recognize assumptions that may exist about their own community and their partner community.

To be determined…


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.
