Today is Day 1 of the third week, and you've all had a first round of the regular weekly tasks of reading/viewing materials, formulating ideas, and interacting with your peers.
I hope this has given you a sense that you are not left on your own to deal with Chinese history even in an asynchronous course (although we DO have a synchronous meeting for your convenience). In addition, you can always browse through the blog stream on the course webpage under the tab "Student Posts", or via the Canvas SECRETS page, at the top of item 4 where you find a link to the Blog stream embedded within Canvas. A click on a post title will take you to the original.
On each course website, there is now also a twitter stream in the right-hand sidebar, with select tweets connected to course contents. There is a very active group of Chinese historians, journalists and museum curators on twitter, and I encourage you to check it out. We may even have a guest visiting the courses here or there, thanks to my modest twitter network.
Schedule for today
History Club will be at the Fall Involvement Fair Zoom Night on Tuesday, 7pm. Say hi!
I never saw mountain lion kittens before, so I am very glad this tweet introduced me to them. Fluffy, but I'm not sure they're very cuddly. Watch those claws in the fourth picture!
