In February of 2010 I started formally uploading my lesson plans to Wikiversity. I wanted to be done with all of it and my review by June, that didn't happen. I continued throughout the fall and winter sporadically and have gotten most of the lesson plans up there, but not in a way thats helpful to anyone.

Now in February of 2011 I want to finish the work by creating a usable print resource for all my lesson plans and what I learned that I can then send to the teachers currently doing my job in Anqing (they city where I taught) thereby hopefuly enabling Collaborative Lesson Planning to occur in the online version of the resource.

My goal is to finish outlying everything that'd be necessary for a PediaPress book by  February 17th 11:59 PM USA CT.

This class is about Collaborative Lesson Planning [CLP] and this is a great opportunity for anyone in this class or on P2PU to get their hands dirty and try CLP out for themselves, please visit my research center and then explore from there. Feel free to tinker, cross some items off the to-do list and/or share ideas.

  • February 14th
    • Go through all the online lesson plans I have up, and fit them all into as general a mold as possible.
  • February 15th
    • Ditto.

Finished about 45-ish minutes after my deadline, unfortunately. I put all the lesson plans I have up there (over 90% of what I have from the year, sadly not 100%) onto this page: Teaching EFL Listening via FUN WITH ENGLISH Books and, for to hopefully help the teachers who're doing my old job right now (Feb 2011) I put my second semester lesson plans together into a book available to purchase on Pediapress, and I shipped them a copy. If you want, you can also download a copy through Wikiversity.

  • As an experiment in paragogy I am inviting the class to join me as I try to get my Chinese lesson plan resource ready for publication in print by February 17th. (from Joe's Journal)
    • Joe's response: This *might* *well* be an exercise in paragogy, but it's not 100% clear what the learning objectives are. These could be added or negotiated in comments to the thread you posted, or some other place. The nature of the experiment itself could be outlined in more detail there as well.
