back channel

I find that it interesting that our first 2 presentations today were on games and pedagogy. I know that it is a subject that is near and dear to my heart, but who knew that other (closet) gamers were bridging the gap between fun an work (even when those 2 things are sometimes the same.

Proposal

We are still one week behind and I have a proposition to get us back on track. Can we do away with the last week's readings and add one person to next week's presentation schedule and one to the schedule for the week after to make it all balance out. Our reading schedule has been so tight that there has been no where to squeeze in more reading!

This week's backchannel (my turn)

Go!

Books

Just a note because I think I forgot to give the location of the books in class. If you can't order the books online they have all been ordered at Border's down on the levee.

Welcome to 605

Welcome to Engl 605. The semester promises to be fun. There is lots that we can teach and learn from each other in the coming weeks. I am really looking forward to it.

All of the articles that we are reading for this class are linked as pdfs from the course calendar which can be found in "Course Materials". There are 5 books that are also required for this class and they can all be ordered online cheaply (much cheaper than list price), but since we don't start with them for over a month I am willing to order them at the book store if folks would rather have it that way.
