Below you will find the journal articles assigned for ED422. Unless noted, the assigned article is required and must be formatted properly (see Cougar Courses or Ed422 website for detailed instructions). The journal article assignment is broken up into two separate assignments for grading. There will be a journal article 1-5 as well as a journal article 6-10 in Cougar Courses or Edmodo. Journals 5 & 10 are extra credit.
Journal 1: List 100 things that make you happy. As with every journal, the title of the post is the word 'Journal' followed by the number of the assigned journal. In this case: Journal 1. The content of the post will be a numerical list of 100 things that make you happy. Ensure that you number the list. While this may seem a bit silly, I think you might want to refer to the list later in the class when you are feeling overwhelmed with the work. . .If you are feeling ambitious, you may add pictures as well.
Journal 2: For the summer, I will count the School 2.0 Reflection assignment as journal 2. Follow the instructions for the School 2.0 assignment, but for the title of the post, use Journal 2 followed by School 2.0 Reflection (ensure you read the assignment instructions thoroughly).
