Plan for the field trip. This is an opportunity to:

to interview the herdsman and other workers about the health issues they have uncovered
to ask questions specific to NE farming that appeared to be deficient in the literature
Revise Draft Glossary
Revise Disciplinary Gaps and Research questions
Assignments due next week (preparation for field trip):
Review the Gaps and Research Questions document linked on the class 10 page and on the main Agriculture page. Think about the questions already listed, edit and add new questions that you think should be addressed at the farm visit. Please initial your entries. Please upload your final comments so they can be forwarded to the herdsmen ahead of our visit.
Continue to work on the Map as a group - suggest creating a to do list to make sure everything gets done for the final product.

See above - no specific assignment for the eJournal. BUT work on Gaps and research questions PLUS contribute to discussions!
