Discussion of Illich
Due: Submit , in writing, to your faculty the kind of space you would like for sharing your final independent project. And, if you need any special equipment, let us know that as well.
Due: “Style is Substance” reflection on your learning. (On writing style and substance, you might want to look again at footnote 3 in the “Prophet of Peace” article.) In addition, bring your seminar ticket for this week and anything that is in your portfolio that involves reflecting of what you have learned. This will include the first day prospective “self-evaluation” and the mid-quarter reflection, but it might also include some of the synthesis papers, seminar e-missives, and doodles.
