If the paper is NOT open access, please post just the link to the paper abstract.
  • Brainstorm in the "Linking Research to Populus" forum how the research paper could be used in conjunction with a Populus activity.

Week 4:

  • Generate a curriculum sketch that you would use in one of your classes that is based on a Populus model
