1/ discussion

Please watch The City in History Video. Find an element of your hometown or a city near you that demonstrates BOTH

  • one of the “recipe ingredients” for a civilization AND
  • one of the objectives for our Creative Spirit Course.

Please post YOUR example, showing why you chose it to meet the requirements and comment in a meaningful fashion on two of your colleagues’ posts. Try to help your colleagues develop their ideas by offering ideas/examples they might not have considered. Try to avoid short responses like: I agree! You rock! While positive statements are absolutely welcome — take the analysis further.

Please comment on two different colleagues’ postings than your previous discussion board. You may — of course — comment on MORE than two!

Please post your contribution AND responses to colleagues complete by Friday.

Virtual “Out and About” in Your City

download

Find an activity associated with the city and the arts or entertainment and go there — in person or virtually! Your venue MUST be a venue supported by public tax dollars. Please be safe and respect Covid-19 social distancing protocols. Be safe.

If you are in Wichita, consider the Veterans’ Memorials on the river or the Keeper of the Plains. Check out the websites for Botanica, Exploration Place or InTrust Bank Arena! This could be a reflection on an event or space you have visited in the past.

If you can get “Out and About” safely — Please do so. But please be safe and use your virtual resources.

1. Present your results in writing.

  • Please take care to present your writing in a professional manner.
  • Please offer one paragraph on what you did and where you went.
  • Then one other paragraph on how your event reflects one of the goals for the Creative Spirit component of the NSP below.

2. Please then post in two places. Here and at the Discussion Board to follow.
