We will build our conversation Monday around these reflections.

Reread Solomon excerpt and bring to class revised identity graphs/models

(ENGL) By 5 p.m. create a webby post on Serendip, answering this question:
what name, what image, would you select to represent what you are learning
about who Eli Clare is/how he is in the world. Log in first--then you might
want to go straight to a 'visualization' of what's happened so far:
Or you could look @ the webby posts 'roadmap':
In either case, once you've read around in the posts that others have done, formulate
your contribution to the conversation that's evolving, and create a webby post:
Be sure to tag which post you're responding to, and the relation of your post to that one.
