These last weeks, I have been reading many comments.
However, I must confess I have been feeling a bit tired and "uncomfortable" after reading some of your comments.
In fact, I find quite "interesting" the fact that most of you chose to sum up the books/ articles at some point in your comments.
When I suggest a reading and ask for your thoughts, opinion, I am looking forward to reading your thoughts and opinion. If I want a summary, I ask for one. :)
I want you to think about what you read, to get your own perspective and share your thoughts.
I know the books, articles I suggest, I have already read them, and I can find a summary anywhere online. What I cannot find is YOUR own perspective and thoughts on them. So BE BRAVE and share your own perspective. Your own reading, feeling and thinking experiences are the most interesting and enriching part of the challenges.
I think that unfortunately schooling has taught us to listen, memorise and repeat, copy and repeat... I believe it is urgent that we take a step forward and empower ourselves and say/ write what we think.
So, power to you!
Think about this kindly and dare to be brave in the future!
I want it to be a mix of "final essay" with the main "insights" from your reading and learning experiences that you have got during this second module. I encourage you to be specific. Go deep. So, I am expecting a final essay, about 2 pages long, with a short introduction and then some paragraphs about your learning experience on reading and writing. Which tasks / readings were relevant to you? Which were your favourite? Which ones were challenging? Why? Which ones were the most inspiring? Why? And a final paragraph about the whole ERW2 experience.
10 days to complete it and send it to me by email, is that ok?
I ask you to browse the website and get to know its great reading resources.
Choose one and start reading it! :)
On this same website, you can also find the first Diary of a Wimpy kid, which has been a huge success. If you do not know this book series, please read a couple of pages to get to know it. You can read a bit about the author here for example. Afterwards, read this amazing reflection by Laura who shares a very relevant perspective on the book. I will never read Jeff's books the same way...
