I plan on introducing the CyberBridge project to my students at the beginning of next week. Like Randy, I plan on delivering a PPT about the topic and how English will be incorporated. I plan on explaining that many students complain that the things they read in English class are works from dead white guys from 100 years ago. This way, when I introduce the project, I can explain that we are going to be living examples of how English relates to real-life-- and the works that we read will be from present research, supreme courts, debates, and marine biology literature. I also want to express my excitement for their participation and explain how the work they do in this class will set them apart from all other English classes and help them for the future. After the PPT/discussion, I want students to write a reflection (blog-style) that they will later post on SciVee once their profiles are created (later that week).
