This week I found the readings to be very dense, but getting through them proved worth it when I was able to extrapolate some great ideas about culture and community. I am still not sure what to choose for my midterm writing. I feel like I need to understand the assignment a little better before I commit to a topic. Once again, I’d like to thank you all for staying connected despite our limited group requirements this week.
I’m still trying to navigate the blog. I have a compulsive need for organization and right now I’m feeling like our posts are a little all over the place… or maybe just mine. Ha!
This week really centered around trying to get the hang of being a mom to two AND a contributing group member simultaneously – these are the first courses (6706 also) I have taken since my son arrived! I was thankful that Jim initiated the group formation and invited me into the group with Tish and Kathi. I was immediately comfortably working with colleagues that I have worked with before. I am also thankful that Jim took the initiative to start our blog, and now that I have admin privileges (if I can figure out how to access them), I will spend some more time navigating around. I still have no idea what I need to do with the class wiki. I think there is something to the “mommy brain” myth. Hopefully I have fulfilled this week’s requirements… I’m feeling a little out of sorts.
