As it says in the course syllabus for “Living the Dreams,” each instructor in this cMOOC has the prerogative to assign individual section breakdowns for the residual 30% not covered by the 35% devoted to the New Media readings and the 35% devoted to the inquiry projects. In the spirit of Thoughtvectors, I have decided to assign 5% of your total grade to the following categories, each of which has a page on the secondary menu beneath the orange banner swath bearing a description and eventual links to assignments.

But furthermore, in the spirit of Fighting Secret Agency (as well as my belief that everybody learns differently, and we should be flexible to reward learners for what they do well), I would like to allow you to devote an extra 5% to the category that you believe best represents your strengths as a writer. You will let me know of your choice in the last week of the class.
