Please make sure all your work from class entries to projects, reflections, etc. are well-organized AND well-labeled in your Digital Science Notebook. Make sure everything is uploaded to the folder and not merely linked to a document/file outside the DSN.

After each discussion/activity, please send the leader an email with these items completed in full sentences. Do this asap. Definitely complete this before the next class:

Please, no idle praise or negative criticism. Focus on the topic, not the person.

  1. Your activity made me think of ________________.
  2. Your discussion made me think of ______________.
  3. The most interesting comments in your discussion were __________________.
  4. These questions about your topic came to my mind during your session: ________________.
  5. Your topic concerns me because ______________________________.
  6. I had never thought of _______________________________ until your discussion/activity.

Session leaders:

After you have finished your presentation, discussion, and activity:

*Send the link to your human impacts folder with all your documents (Annotated bibliography, presentation, activity plan, discussion plan) to Dr. F. Make sure the sharing is set so that anyone with the link can view. All links will be posted so that everyone has access to everyone’s research and plans.

After you receive feedback from your classmates (let me know who sends you comments):

*Write a reflection taking account of the comments and questions as well as your own hopes, fears, successes, etc. If you were to start the process again from picking a topic to researching, to preparing and implementing your plans, what might you do differently? Why? Describe what you feel you learned that is most important. Rate yourself along these 4 dimensions of concern for the environment especially in the context of your topic: Affection or Affiliation, Awareness, Advocacy, Action. Explain. Post this reflection in your human impacts folder. This should be completed by two classes from the day of your session.
