Wednesday, March 2 – People and their lives, how to touch others, to empathize
• read ALL BOXES in Ito. Remember what Zandt has to say about empathy and sympathy.
how are these stories? what do they do? how do they help people understand the arguments of the book?
• how does your project touch you? how can it touch others? how do you plan to reach out?

=> • inventories and brainstorming write ups, document online presence, logbooking
All through the class you will keep a logbook of what you have done, what you are in the middle of doing, what you are working toward. You will turn in a cumulative log each time you work through one of the five stages of the class. [Learning Outcomes Assessments or LOAs are taken for our department from this class. At the end of this course you will turn in extra copies of some assignments to be used anonymously in department assessment efforts.]
=> • storyboard (crafty, electronic, or online), includes presentation & digital picture
A storyboard is a form of visual thinking and planning. It allows you to visually demonstrate to yourself and others a sequence of steps in an interactive and/or collaborative process. It allows you to reorder your procedures, to brainstorm with others, and to create consensus. You will present your storyboard and turn in a digital picture to document it.
