Hi guys,

I uploaded my comments to your prototype. Let's talk about it in class. Remember that this is just the first of many versions. You haven't been "graded." We know that you are still "working through" your ideas and view your submitted documents as a work in progress. Any questions or confusion, please feel free to reach out to Matt or me.

8Oct Daily Stand

Everyone:
worked on first prototype (Take Stock of Your Resources)
need Brennan to look over (expert review) to make sure we started on the right track
need to research more and add outside resources to the prototype
we are generally confused about how to go about the project, and what the final output should be

Cameron:
aggregated resources that could potentially be helpful about storytelling and pitching

Hi Pitch team! We've got everything setup for your project now (and it's a great one). If you check the files section you'll see a link to the project scoping document.

Cassie (and Elizabeth Hunter) created the DFA pitch curriculum this summer, and your job will be to extend it to cover a broader and more in-depth ways of pitching.

Brennan is your mentor -- he worked on the Pitch curriculum last Spring when it was just getting started so he has a lot of experience designing the kind of learning environment you'll be working on.
