For Tuesday, let’s read up to the end of Chapter 24 in Grapes of Wrath.
And, I’ve created a simple forum site to organize our Omeka work. Go to the Steinbeck forum and register. (You’ll see a link to register at the bottom of the login box.) Once you’ve registered and logged into the site, click on the “Omeka exhibit items” link and then “Create a new topic.” Add your proposed Grapes of Wrath item to the title box and then use the text box to explain your topic/item and what makes it interesting. (If things get confusing or weird, relax. We’ll review this in class on Monday.)
Finally, bring a portable computing device (laptop) to class on Monday, so we can start tinkering with Omeka.
