Following each Saturday meeting, a 2-3 page report
should be prepared and turned in at the next regular class session
in addition to any other assignments given that day.
These workshops will focus on issues discussed in
class, the readings and the videos. Each will relate to the theme
for the summer and will include activities from both Environmental
Science 1 and Speech 104. The morning session will include presentations
from both instructors and an orientation to the day's activities.
Attendance is required at all Saturday workshops.
In order to receive credit for the day, you must sign in between 8am
and 8:30am and personally fill out the evaluation of the day at the
end of the day. If you miss a Saturday workshop, you will loose a
substantial amount of credit for the course UNLESS THE INSTRUCTOR
HAS BEEN CONTACTED IN ADVANCE AND AN ALTERNATIVE PLAN NEGOTIATED.
If you have not negotiated in advance, no make-up work will be allowed.
Saturday workshops will sometimes meet on-campus
for the morning orientation and then reconvene in the field. Other
times, we will spend the entire day at an alternate location. The
content and requirements for each workshop are included in the pages
that follow. Plan to be an active participant in the day. The class
will be split into small groups that will work together and discuss
issues together throughout the day. Learning about the issues, taking
a stand and communicating your desires to those in power will be among
the themes for each trip.
For these workshops to be a success, it
is imperative that you complete your readings, assignments and watch
the required videos during the week.
In addition to attending the workshop in
its entirety, you are required to complete the attached WORKSHEETS
and write a 2 - 3 page summary report. The Worksheet should be attached
to the report. The worksheet can be handwritten, but the report must
be typed or computer generated.
There may be fees for Saturday workshops.
These will be detailed on the pages that follow.
WHAT TO BRING
We will usually be inside a meeting room
for the morning orientation and then out in the elements for the remainder
of the day. It will sometimes be hot and other times may be cold.
Dress in layers that allow you to be comfortable in any situation.
Be sure to bring a hat, sunscreen, water, sunglasses, lunch, snacks,
notebook and comfortable shoes to hike and walk in. You may also
consider bringing a daypack, camera, binoculars and a small blanket
or towel for sitting on the ground.
It is important that we carpool to the field
trip locations. Please do your best to arrange this.
