In class today, we’ll discuss the syllabus, course schedule, and required texts. Please get started on ordering the two class novels.
I will also be ensuring that everyone is able to log into our Slack workspace. When you’ve done that, please reply to the message at the top of the #general channel indicating that you’ve read the syllabus.
Before our next class on Wednesday:
- Read the short story, “There Will Come Soft Rains” by Ray Bradbury. Be prepared for a discussion on the relationship between robots and humans described in the story.
- Read my post “Class Reading Activities (CRAs)” which describes the main activity that we’ll be using for reading over the course of the semester. Be prepared to ask questions about the assignment or explain it to others.
- Read my post “Slack Tips, Tricks, and Requests” in order to familiarize yourself with Slack, and begin using those practices in our workspace.
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 🙂 Feel free to DM me on Slack or email me (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
