The spring semester starts in just under a week. On the first day, I will give the students in ANT 358 their first ePortfolio assignment. It will be to create a short narrative about themselves, why they wanted to take a course about American Indian cultures, what they already know about American Indian cultures, and what they hope to get from the course.
From the beginning, the student ePortfolios will be publicly available. Given the inadequate state of education about American Indian cultures in the United States, I feel as though this will be a way that the students can help others learn through their experiences about American Indian cultures, history, and modern conditions and concerns.
All of the students’ ePortfolios will be linked through my site here, and you can follow us on Twitter @WFUanthro358.
