( Think "CHOOSE TO", Not "HAVE TO". )
Map Out The Metaphor Of What. Set Achievable Boundaries. Define what we are going to try to learn how to do: CHOOSE FOCUS Overall (General Case) Define how we will know when we have fulfilled this goal. Define what kind of evidence we will produce, to demonstrate our competency in this subject: DELIVERABLES. Map Out The Metaphor Of When List a subject or subset of this general focus for each week Define weekly reporting format.. List what resources we have available now, to help us focus on this each week. Create a verbalized-in-words skeletal outline to please the LeftBrain. Create a pictorial flowchart outline to please the RightBrain. Get teacher/mentor/coach's approval or acquiescence. Give or send the teacher a copy of this course definition.
