Designing Your Own Sequences

posted: 10.20.10 by Barclay Barrios

This post is part of a continuing series on building a course around the textbook Emerging. For previous posts in the series, see here and here.

Theoretically, any two randomly selected readings can be sequenced; however, you will probably find it more useful to develop a theme around which to organize your sequence. For example, you might select a theme such as globalization, death and mourning, science and ethics, networks and communities, or political processes.

A more practical method of building a sequence is to start with an essay you would enjoy teaching, then add essays that work with that selection, letting the theme emerge as you write the accompanying assignments.
