JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "We Run This" by Missy Elliot; "Upside Down" by Jack Johnson]

Everything you know about school has been reversed in this course.  The student is at the top of the organizational chart; the teacher, the community, and the tools of the Information Age all work for you now.  As the CEO of your personal learning organization, you recognize that power brings responsibility-- most importantly, the responsibility to evaluate your performance and set a course that leads to success.  So, today's journal topic is this: how are you doing on your masterpiece so far and where do you see it heading?  Are you taking initiative or waiting for direction?  Are you satisfied with the work you've done so far?  Are you optimistic about what's next?  Do you see opportunities we haven't discussed?  What guidance/support will you need in Masterpiece Consultation #2?

1. Journal
2. Jayce calls Brave New World "mind blowing"-- have a conversation with your colleague/s about your experience of the book so far.  Take notes and post to your course blog.  Make sure to include your perspective on Huxley's writing as well as his ideas.

1. Post your notes
2. Analyze chapter 4 of Brave New World
3. Bring a list of questions & ideas for discussion on Tuesday
