JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: by request]
For these last few days, your journal is actually YOUR JOURNAL. Take notes on the conversation in your head.
"Those first few songs I wrote, I was just taking notes at a fantastic rock concert going on inside my head."
***NOTE: Today I will be hosting orientation for next year's course in the room at lunch. Anyone who wants to play is welcome. If your group needs a place to meet please see me.
2. Schedule for the rest of this week & next
In education there are many words and phrases whose contexts and connotations have spoiled their use outside the classroom (e.g., it's hard to imagine a military or corporate leader asking a team member-- without sarcasm or irony-- why s/he was "tardy"). Tonight you probably have things to do on your project. This is imaginative, innovative, next-level stuff: what can we call it besides "homework"? Please offer your suggestion in a comment to this post.
