Students must keep a journal for the course. Journal entries must be kept online in a google doc made available to Dr. Smith. Instructions to share the google doc are available here. Journal entries are due three times during the semester:
Wednesday February 20
Wednesday March 27
Wednesday May 1
The journal entries should focus on (1) the student’s individual experience in the course relating to the project process, (2) peer evaluation of team-members, (3) lessons learned in a wider planning/preservation context. Length is not prescribed, but 1-2 paragraphs on each topic is expected. This is a chance for each student to critically assess their and their classmates’ contribution to the learning process. Proper spelling and grammar are expected in this assignment, which should be treated as a formal writing exercise.
The three journals will be worth 15% of the final grade. Dr. Smith will provide feedback and provisional grades directly on the google doc after each journal submission so students know where they stand in the course.
