All documents for Sensorial are now available.  For the templates for the Binomial and Trinomial Cube, the templates have been improved!  Best to use these for your album , rather than any you've downloaded prior to today.

Daily Schedules

Under the "general" tab are some updated Daily Schedules.  


I've updated the 10/17 - 11/11 current schedule to reflect some additions from the white board; namely, some extended open hours next week, and the Observation assignment due the Monday you return. 

There is now a schedule available for November and into early December as well.

Per Check in today, some dates fixed and details clarified


Weekly Assignment Schedule - This has been updated to indicate that your Sensitive Periods submission can come to me via email (Although it's fine if you happen to be in the neighborhood and want to submit a paper copy). Also now reflects the 11/7 submission date for the Observation assignment.



Observation Tasks - document has been updated to reflect November 7 as the due date for the written assignment.

Variety of documents available for this week, next week, and beyond


General - I've posted a pdf of the replacement page 45 for the Handbook.

Theory - Updated version of one of the handouts for The Collective Stage.  Read, print, and bring all handouts for this topic for this Friday as indicated on the Daily Schedule. 


Sensorial - Documents are ready for the beginning of Sensorial (Monday, October 17, as indicated on the Daily Schedule).  On Monday, please come to class having read and with printed copies of the Introduction, Check Sheet, and Presentation Outlines.  For the Presentation Outlines, it's fine to just bring the first few pages as we'll be focusing just on the Visual and Tactile Senses next week.


"Other" - Observation - All documents related to Observation are now ready.  These will be read, printed, and brought to class prior to Observation Session 1 (indicated on Daily Schedule)

"Other" - The Practical Life and Sensorial Material Making Self-Evaluation form is now available.

Documents updated - "Weekly Assignments..." and "Loyola Primary Course Evaluation Criteria"

Throughout the course I will use this Announcements section to point you toward any new or revised documents.  

In the tab that says "General,"  I have updated the document called "Weekly Assignments - Detailed Schedule."  I corrected an odd date in November.  If you have already downloaded or printed this document, please update it with this new version.

In the tab that says "Other," I have added a document related to the cooperative M.Ed. program with Loyola University.  The document is called "Loyola Primary Course Evaluation Criteria"

Preparing for in-class discussion and activities

Please follow the instructions below to help prepare for the first days of the course.  

1)  Take a look at the "Daily Schedule" document, found here under the "General" tab. This shows what we will be doing each day for the next few weeks. I recommend printing this document to keep for your reference.   I will also display one here at MNW.  It will be updated regularly.

2) You'll see that the second day of class, Wednesday 9/7, the group will be discussing two topics from the Theory Album.  

3) The expectation is that students come to class that day having already read the texts for those topics.  You will find texts with these titles in the "Theory Album" tab here in the student area of the website.   

4)  For Wednesday 9/7, bring a printed copy of the Historical Perspective document to class. For Human Tendencies, you can simply bring your Bound Theory Text Collection that you will receive at the Orientation/Open House.

5) Feel free to read ahead if you would like to prepare for the Four Planes and Reading Seminar later that week.
