As we move out of this “unprecedented year,” the workplace has obviously changed forever. The subgroup that is the most affected are early professionals who have entered the workforce or began their careers in the last five years. While workplace culture shifts have resulted in new levels of autonomy and flexibility, younger professionals are looking for tools and strategies both to adjust to this new norm, and to find their professional place as they evolve into our future leaders.   Through the Designing your Professional Future course, participants will be introduced to key components of the Leadership Coaching and Life Design methodologies. As we combine these dynamic approaches, we also present tools and strategies to pave the way for participants to think differently about how their personal and professional goals can be created, implemented and sustained long term.  Over the course of two, one-hour segments, participants will have the time and space to assess areas of their work there are interested in developing, gain a better understanding of how to engage in effective goal setting and action planning, and discuss how to make these growth opportunities sustainable into the future.  Upon completing the Designing your Professional Future course, participants will have a clear understanding of the various programming options provided by Johns Hopkins Executive Education and where alignment exists between one’s own professional aspirations, existing coursework and how to take the next step in their unique professional development.

Affinity HopkinsatHome Virtual July 29, July 29, ThursdaySponsored by Peabody, JHAA Affinity, Hopkins at Home, and The Office of Diversity and Inclusion 2020 brought us more than a pandemic. During this unprecedented time, violence against members of the APIDA community has spiked and continued discrimination against APIDA individuals is now squarely the focus of public attention. Join us for a panel discussion with members of the Hopkins APIDA community about their personal experiences over the last year and what they believe the next 12 months may bring. Following this livestream, we invite participants to join our panelists in small group conversations via Zoom guided by two exploratory questions: 1. How do we combat the growing APIDA hate and violence in our communities? 2. Where do APIDA stories and efforts for equity and anti-racism fit into today’s current public discourse and the increased focus on the Black Lives Matter movement?   MEET OUR SPEAKERS AJ Tsang, A&S '19           AJ Tsang graduated from Johns Hopkins in 2019 with a B.A. in French and a B.A in Public Health, with a concentration in health policy, economics, and management. At Hopkins, AJ served as Student Body President and worked as a research assistant at the Bloomberg School of Public Health and as a PILOT leader for biostatistics, epidemiology, and microeconomics courses. He also served as a Presiding Official on the Ethics Board and as a student representative on the Mental Health Task Force, the Diversity Leadership Council (DLC), and the Homewood Council on Inclusive Excellence (HCIE), where he co-chaired the Climate, Culture, and Campus Experience Subcommittee. During his time in the Student Government Association (SGA), AJ led the final years of SGA’s long-term advocacy campaign for the construction of a student center; established SGA’s Civic Engagement Committee and Policy Research and Development Commission; and started SGA's Shared Governance Initiative, which aimed to enhance the role of students, faculty, and staff in university policymaking processes. AJ currently works as a Senior Consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton, where he supports clients in the federal health space and serves as an executive member of the firm's Asian- and Pacific-American Network (APAN). AJ is also a member of Hopkins' Baltimore Young Alumni Committee and has been part of efforts to form an Asian-, Pacific-Islander-, and Desi-American (APIDA) affinity group for Hopkins alumni. AJ also served on the alumni working group that developed alumni-focused recommendations for the next iteration of Hopkins' Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion. Anisha Anand, A&S '18               Anisha Anand graduated from Johns Hopkins in 2018 with majors in Economics and International Studies. She currently works in New York at Brookfield Asset Management in Private Funds, assessing investor demand and assisting capital raising efforts for Brookfield’s investment strategies.

Dr. Suhnne Ahn           Suhnne Ahn joined the musicology faculty at Peabody Conservatory in 1997 after completing her Ph.D. in musicology from Harvard University. Her dissertation, “Genre Style, and Compositional Procedure in Beethoven’s ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata, Opus 47,” was written under the direction of Lewis Lockwood and examines Beethoven’s creative process in composing this masterpiece as well the hybridization of concerto and sonata genre influences contained within. Her research interests include Beethoven sketch studies, 19th-century chamber music, and the early formation of the Paris Conservatory. Ahn’s work has been published in The Beethoven Violin Sonatas: History, Criticism, Performance by University of Illinois Press. Most recently, her scholarly endeavors are directed toward the ongoing development of a web-based “e-edition” of the violin concerti of the triumvirate of Parisian virtuosi Rodolphe Kreutzer, Pierre Rode, and Pierre Baillot. Ahn came to the study of musicology through her early activities as a performer. She received her B.A. in music from Yale College. While turning toward musicology, she studied piano as an undergraduate at the Yale School of Music and attended the Aspen Music Festival. Influential piano teachers include Charlotte Martin, Arlene Portney, Ward Davenny, and Herbert Stessin. Ensemble experiences as a violinist in numerous youth orchestras in Oklahoma were also significant. Her familiarity with both the piano and string repertoire steered her toward and informs her scholarly work on Beethoven’s chamber music. Her awards include the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) for study in Berlin, the Oscar Straus Schafer Teaching Fellowship recognizing devotion to undergraduate teaching at Harvard, the Paine Traveling Fellowship for research in Bonn, and Peabody Faculty Development grants that have facilitated research pursuits in Krakow and Paris. In addition to teaching courses in her area of expertise, Ahn has offered a variety of seminars with topics ranging from sixteenth century English polyphony to the chamber music of Brahms to twentieth century opera. Her classes on Russian music history and the history of the Requiem were tributes honoring Baltimore’s homage to sister city St. Petersburg and the anniversary of 9/11 respectively. A recent seminar on the Paris Conservatory provides an opportunity for musicians from all disciplines to examine early pedagogical issues associated with their own instruments or voice type. Outside the Conservatory, Ahn served as the Director of Student Affairs at Peabody Preparatory from 1997 until 2002. From 2002 to 2014, she was the House Dean of Harnwell College House at the University of Pennsylvania, where she also taught several courses in the critical writing program with an emphasis on cinema studies, and from 2015 to 2016, she served as Dean of Residential Life and Student Activities at the Colburn School in Los Angeles. Most recently, Ahn has taught within Peabody’s liberal arts curriculum offering undergraduate cinema courses on the American actress Katharine Hepburn and East Asian and Asian-American representation in film. In Fall 2018, Ahn assumed the position of Director of the Peabody at Homewood program, the music minor curriculum within the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. She currently serves on the committee of the Yale Friends of Music, is a board member of the Jonathan Edwards Trust at Yale, and has been a long-standing member of the American Musicological Society (AMS).

"Being Other": A Community Discussion Series
VirtualAugust 05, August 5, ThursdaySponsored by Lifelong Learning Regarding John F. Kennedy’s 1960 election, one historian has written, “It was that first moment in our history when we saw that television can transform a political candidate from a candidate into a celebrity, and it changed the whole contours of our politics.” Join Professor Allen Pietrobon as he takes us back to the Eisenhower Era, a time before the “celebrity president.” We will examine the lives and backgrounds of John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon and see how Kennedy became president by dominating the television narrative and using innovative campaign techniques that set the model for presidential election campaigns to this very day. The first-ever televised presidential debate took place in 1960; the result was seen as being so disastrous (for Nixon) that it would be 16 years before presidential candidates agreed to debate live on TV again. In this presentation, we’ll use the 1960 presidential election as our lens to explore American politics and culture in this pivotal era in history. Dr. Allen Pietrobon is an Assistant Professor of Global Affairs at Trinity Washington University. He specializes in 20th-Century American history and U.S. Foreign Policy, focusing on nuclear weapons policies and Cold War diplomacy. Since 2011, he has also served as an Assistant Director of Research at the Nuclear Studies Institute at American University. Professor Pietrobon’s Recommended Reading: Something from the Oven: Reinventing Dinner in 1950s America, by Laura Shapiro Fatland: How Americans Became the Fattest People in the World, by Greg Crister Formerly Known as Food: How the Industrial Food System is Changing Our Minds, Bodies, and Culture, by Kristin Lawless The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, by Michael Pollan Dirt: Adventures in Lyon as a Chef in Training, Father, and Sleuth Looking for the Secret of French Cooking, by Bill Burford (an excellent chef’s memoir)/event/kennedynixondebate

August 17, August 17, TuesdaySponsored by Lifelong Learning Please join us for an interview with one of the world’s most influential thinkers on personal productivity, David Allen.

Virtual August 17, August 17, TuesdaySponsored by Hopkins Alumni Join fellow alumni and friends as we virtually tour the gilded-age mansions of New York City's Fifth Avenue with the Bowery Boys. The term “Gilded Age” is used to refer to the period of booming economic growth in the USA in the second half of the 19th century. In New York City this is the period when robber barons like Frick and Carnegie built some of the most extravagant urban palaces the city has ever seen. Beaux-Arts was the dominant style of architecture in this period, as the greatest American architects from Richard Morris Hunt to Stanford White to C.P.H Gilbert all studied abroad in Paris. These three architects and many others created French châteaux, Italian palazzi, Gothic castles, and Neoclassical mansions in the heart of New York City, and helped give Fifth Avenue along Central Park the cachet it still holds today, as one of the most famous residential neighborhoods in the city. Join us as we "stroll" up the avenue to visit the grand residences, to see their exteriors, and to hear stories of their designers and owners. Don’t miss this experience that takes you up one of the most famous streets in the world. This tour has a limited number of spaces available, so please make sure to register early to secure your spot!

KriegerSchoolofArtsSciences HopkinsatHome Virtual August 19, August 19, Thursday  Brought to you by Hopkins at Home Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome August 19, 2021 - September 2, 2021 (3 sessions) Thursdays, 6:00 - 7:00 PM ET This Hopkins at Home course invites you to make your own discoveries as you read and discuss this classic of ancient culture. We will begin by reviewing the encapsulated plot summary, which is supplied by the Homeric poet in book one, at a Council of the gods on Mount Olympus. This council takes place ten years after the end of the Trojan War, which had itself lasted ten years. By this time, all of the surviving Greek heroes have achieved their “nostos” or homecoming with the exception of Odysseus, who has been languishing for the past seven years on the island of the sea nymph Kalypso. The goddess Athena, however, has decided it is now time to set in motion a series of events that will bring Odysseus home. Decisions made at the opening Council of the gods on Olympus set the stage for the interconnected adventures of Odysseus, his wife Penelope, and their son Telemachus—who was an infant when his father left but is now about twenty. We will follow these three plot lines as they play out across all 24 books of the Odyssey. For each of our three discussion sections, you will have the option of writing a close reading of a pre-selected passage of text, about 15-20 lines in length. Participants who choose to do so can share some of their observations in the weekly discussion sections.  About our speaker  Elizabeth Patton has taught The Odyssey since 2003 in the interdepartmental consortium course, Great Books at Hopkins, which she has directed since 2008. As Senior Lecturer in the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute, she also directed JHU’s Master of Liberal Arts Program (MLA) from 2016-18. Dr. Patton holds an MA in Comparative Literature with a focus on classical and medieval oral-formulaic composition, and a doctorate in English and Comparative Literature from Columbia University, where she first taught The Odyssey in the Columbia’s Literature-Humanities (Lit-Hum) program. Her publications include studies of the remnants of oral composition in Medieval and Renaissance literature, and the focus of her current research is the recovery of lost or overlooked works by early modern women, such as the Elizabethan noblewoman, Dorothy Arundell (1570-1613). Dr. Patton has reconstructed Arundell’s lost English biography of the sixteenth-century Jesuit, John Cornelius, by collating formerly unattributed manuscript and print sources, including contemporary translations of Arundell’s work into Latin, Spanish and Italian.   Course text: The Odyssey of Homer, translated by Richmond Lattimore (Harper Collins).  https://www.harpercollins.com/products/the-odyssey-of-homer-richmond-lattimore?variant=32123208826914  Please note that there are many used copies of Lattimore’s translation of The Odyssey available from Amazon and other vendors. The year of publication does not matter, and cover images may vary; just keep in mind that you are strongly encouraged to use only Richmond Lattimore’s translation for this class. We will be looking closely at the text, and there may be significant variations in the phrasing of different translations. You may also find it helpful to have the paper text at hand to write your own notes in. There will be three pre-recorded lectures for this class, plus an introductory review of oral poetry (e.g., the “ring structure” of oral-formulaic composition, the dactylic hexameter line, and the oral poet’s use of epithets such as “much enduring Odysseus,” “circumspect Penelope,” and “thoughtful Telemachus”). This introductory overview will also include a step-by-step guide to the close-reading process. The three class lectures, each of which is followed by a discussion section, are designed to guide your reading of the twenty-four books of The Odyssey.  Lecture one, to be followed by a discussion on Thursday, August 19, 6 - 7 PM   Assigned reading: The Odyssey, Books 1-6:   At a Council of the gods on Mount Olympus (Book 1), Athena proposes a plan.  Telemachus then calls a Council in Ithaca (Book 2); Penelope’s weaving strategy is discovered; Telemachus leaves Ithaca secretly to visit two war heroes.  When Athena leaves Mount Olympus to visit Telemachus in Book 1, Hermes also departs from Olympus to go and inform the nymph Kalypso that she must release Odysseus from her island; This thematic thread I pick up in books 5 and 6.  Lecture two, to be followed by a discussion on Thursday, August 26, 6 - 7 PM  Assigned reading: The Odyssey, Books 7-15: “The Great Travels”   In books 7-8, Odysseus is received at the court of the Pheaecians in Scheria  In books 9-12, he recounts his adventures during a ten-year effort to return home.  In books13-15, Odysseus and Telemachus return, separately, to Ithaca.  Session 3: Thursday, September 2, 6 - 7 PM  Assigned reading: The Odyssey, Books 16-24:   A series of recognition scenes concludes with that of Odysseus and Penelope.  Odysseus secretly assembles his troops.  The suitors are defeated Telemachus’s plea to the gods in Book 2 is resolved.  A final vignette of the suitors in Hades, and the restoration of order in Ithaca. 2021-08-12 -- 6 -- 00 -- PM -- -- 7 -- 00 -- PM -- Online -- -- Baltimore -- MD -- 21211 -- USA -- 1 -- -- 200 -- Session 1 Name -- 0 -- 0 Session 1 Name the-odyssey-of-homer-a-close-rea

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual August 26, August 26, ThursdayCreating Public Health Measures that Respect and Engage Communities Public health measures and recommendations only work when they are adopted by communities and ingrained into every day life. Occasionally, the public health measures advised or recommended do not line up with community values or cultures, creating tension between local governments and those receiving public health recommendations, and creating a lower chance the recommendations will be adopted. How can public health measures be created to encourage behavioral change while respecting the culture and tradition of a specific ethnic or cultural group? Join us for a conversation on how leaders can build community trust and engagement by creating localized public health measures.

Odyssey September 14, September 14, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey September 14, 2021 - October 5, 2021 Tuesdays, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ET (8 course hours) Daniel M. Stuart's biography S. N. Goenka: Emissary of Insight will serve as a guide to Goenka’s meditational practices and teachings. Yuval Noah Harari writes (in 2018) of his first meditation retreat with Goenka, “Since that first course in 2000, I began meditating for two hours every day, and each year I take a long meditation retreat of a month or two.”  This class will investigate how Goenka’s teachings and practices helped form a base for Harari’s work 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.  Harari recounts many of the effects Goenka had on him in the book’s final chapter, “Meditation.”  We will analyze Goenka’s influence on Harari in terms of Harari’s ideas, meditation practice, and writing process, with meditation being a major lens by which Harari shapes his works.   Syllabus Classes 1 and 2: S. N. Goenka: Emissary of Insight by Daniel M. Stuart. Stuart’s biography of one of the major meditation teachers of the twentieth century presents a nuanced view of Goenka’s work and influence and provides a representative collection of his writings, practices, and teachings. Classes 3 and 4: 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari.  A #1 New York Times bestseller. Harari’s work is a penetrating and stimulating presentation of today’s most urgent issues.  This class idea was brought together through my first encounter in 1974 with my first meditation teacher, Burmese teacher Satya Narayan Goenka, and the impact Harari's book 21 Lessons for the 21st Century had on me which helped to balance and renew me during this difficult past year. Readings S. N. Goenka: Emissary of Insight by Daniel M. Stuart, ISBN 978-1-61180-816-6 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, ISBN 978-0-525-51219-6 Class participants should read through part one in Stuart's work, "The Biography,” Chapters 1 through 7, in preparation for the first night’s class.

ArtsEntertainmentMediaEntrepreneurship Affinity September 14, September 14, TuesdaySponsored by the Arts, Entertainment, Media, & Entrepreneurship Affinity Join us for an evening with alumna and author, Emma Brodie (A&S '11) as she discusses her new book, Songs in Ursa Major (Alfred A. Knopf). Emma will also discuss her time at Hopkins, how it put her on her current path, and how she got published. This program will be presented on Zoom. A link will be shared with all registrants in advance of the program. ABOUT THE BOOK When folk legend Jesse Reid falls in love with an unknown singer-song-writer named Jane Quinn, Jane's entire life changes. Plucked from the small island off the coast of Massachusetts where she grew up, she soon finds herself on tour with Jesse and his band, a record deal in hand, and a hit song climbing the charts. Caught up in the thrill of the road and the profound connection she has with Jesse, Jane is blindsided by the discovery she makes about the dark secret beneath his music. Heartbroken and blackballed by an industry built on appearances, Jane, a truly gifted musician with a secret of her own, must figure out just how much she is willing to sacrifice for her dreams.  “I’ve never read a book that so uniquely captures the experience of creativity and the shimmering coolness of being in a recording studio as music history is made.  Emma Brodie perfectly channels the languorous romance of the time and the beautiful struggle of an artistic soul trying to break free.  So many of the passages throughout Songs in Ursa Major are such pure poetry, I got chills as I read them.  I could drink a case of this book, and I’d still be on my feet.” - Kevin Kwan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians To purchase the book, CLICK HERE.  ABOUT THE AUTHOR Emma Brodie (A&S '11), Author, Songs in Ursa Major Emma Brodie has worked in book publishing for a decade, most recently as an executive editor at Little, Brown's Voracious imprint.

Odyssey September 21, September 21, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey September 21, 2021 - October 19, 2021 Tuesdays, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ET (10 course hours)   I think of two landscapes—one outside the self, the other within. The external landscape is the one we see—not only the line and color of the land and its shading at different times of the day, but also its plants and animals in season, its weather, its geology, the record of its climate and evolution . . . The second landscape I think of is an interior one, a kind of projection within a person of the part of the exterior landscape . . .the speculations, intuitions, and formal ideas we refer to as “mind” . . . The interior landscape responds to the character and subtlety of an exterior landscape; the shape of the individual is as affected by land as it is by genes.  ~~Barry Lopez, “Landscape and Narrative”  This course offers an interdisciplinary study of the American natural environment and the role it has played in shaping American identity. We anchor our study by looking at the way ideas of the natural environment and the lands and waters of North America have been constructed throughout cultural history -- as kindred spirits by Native Americans; as a “howling wilderness” by the early European colonists; as a boundless inventory of resources that were "ours for the taking" by right of Manifest Destiny; as a school for the spirit by the New England Transcendentalists; as a precious inheritance in need of stewardship and preservation by 19th-century conservationists such as John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt; as a crisis of global warming, environmental degradation and Sixth Extinction by Deep Ecologists.    Philosophically, we explore the influence on early colonists of Biblical and Enlightenment thought, of the European Romantic movement, and the moral ambiguities of the American land and environment in relation to the slave experience and U.S. policies of "Indian Removal." We explore ideas of European Romanticism that gave rise to Emersonian Transcendentalism (America’s first homegrown philosophy), the competing theories behind forest management, the national park movement, and wilderness preservation and. more recently, the revival of Native American holistic values in ecological paradigms.    Beginning with Thoreau, who “went to the woods to learn to live deliberately, “ and John Muir, we read noted texts of American nature writing, one of America’s finest contributions to world literature. We'll discuss the bridging of the so-called "two cultures," science and art, in the work of writers Ed Abbey and Annie Dillard, paleontologist Loren Eiseley, and conservationist/activists Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, and Al Gore.  Readings Readings will be sent electronically to the class for each class session, not as "assignments," but as the basis for enhancing our class discussions.

Linking nutrition with agriculture has been a focus of her passion and work over the past years­––from working with local farmers and food suppliers, to promoting consumption of local foods, to helping resource limited families here and abroad access fresh, affordable food. Becky believes good nutrition for everyone relies first on a healthy food system. In the same way, addressing hunger and food security within the scope of agriculture cannot be separate from nutrition.  Becky is active as a board chair of Aids Orphan Education Trust, which supports a Ugandan organization serving orphans and vulnerable families. She is an avid runner and is passionate about all things vegetable—from soil to table—and loves gardening, cooking and eating. Raychel Santo (A&S '14), Senior Program Coordinator, Food Production & Public Health, Food Communities & Public Health, Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future Raychel is a Senior Research Program Coordinator with two programs at the Center: the Food Production and Public Health program and the Food Communities and Public Health program. In this role, she works on a variety of projects related to local/regional food policy councils and governance (through the Food Policy Networks project), the relationship between diet and climate change, urban agriculture, and institutional food procurement. Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Raychel’s interests in preventive health, environmental sustainability, and community empowerment began with her discovery of the sustainable food movement. As an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins, she immersed herself in academic and research pursuits to learn more about this emerging field. Double-majoring in Public Health and Global Environmental Change & Sustainability, Raychel directed her studies to better understand how pesticides, toxicants, and environmental conditions affect human and ecological health. She learned about the physical effects and psychological influences of our diets; how climate change will affect local, regional, and global food production and security; and the social and political implications of various food policies. During this time, she worked with the CLF as a student research assistant (2010 to 2013) and as a full-time program coordinator (2014 to 2015), gaining a more critical eye toward understanding the complexity of creating systemic solutions to our food-related issues. After completing her Master’s degree in Food, Space & Society at Cardiff University School of Geography & Planning with the support of the US-UK Fulbright Commission, Raychel returned to the CLF full-time in spring 2017. Raychel extends her passions to extracurricular life as well. She co-founded Real Food Hopkins, a chapter of the national Real Food Challenge student movement committed to bringing local/community-based, ecologically sound, humanely raised, and fair food to the JHU campus and surrounding Baltimore area. In addition to organizing food advocacy and awareness events, the group was instrumental in getting the University to commit to purchasing at least 35 percent “real” food by 2020. An avid gardener at the Blue Jay's Perch Community Garden, she can often be found there weeding, digging, and chatting on the weekends. She also enjoys cooking, yoga, hiking, and playing cards and board games. MEET OUR MODERATOR Lauren Blake, Biophysics PhD Candidate, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine | Co-founder, JHU Alternative Protein Project Lauren is a PhD candidate at the School of Medicine studying RNA biophysics in living cells. She received her Bachelors degree at the University of Cincinnati in Biomedical Engineering in 2016. Anyone who knows her is aware of her unrelenting passion for shifting the world towards alternative foods, textiles, and materials that do not require animal agriculture. This goal, combined with her engineering and biophysics background, led her to cofound the Johns Hopkins Alternative Protein Project at the start of this year in order to advance alternative protein technology. Lauren feels strongly that Johns Hopkins should be a leader in helping solve one of the most important, yet often overlooked, biomedical problems facing the world over the next several decades, which is equitable access to healthy and sustainably-sourced food. She is thrilled to help get this conversation started at a top biomedical research university such as Hopkins, and is honored to moderate the discussion today.

Odyssey October 05, October 5, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 5, 2021 - November 2, 2021  Tuesday, 6:30 PM ET (7.5 course hours) This course is an alternative to a writing workshop where participants critique each other’s writing: a practicum focusing on sentence-level improvement. Using a method the co-instructors developed called “the sentence-composing approach,” participants practice sentence strategies used by authors ranging from J. R. R. Tolkien to J. K. Rowling. In building better sentences, participants learn to do what successful authors do, and will leave each session with sentence-building tools applicable to almost any kind of writing--academic, business, literary, or personal.   Session 1 10/05/21   Description: To learn a technique replicating the structure of a mentor sentence by a recognizable author.  Objectives: Participants will analyze sentences by recognizable authors to learn the sentence-composing tools used therein to build those sentences and to  compose sentences with those same tools.  Session 2  10/12/21   Description: The identifier sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the identifier tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 3  10/19/21   Description: The describer sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the describer tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 4  10/26/21   Description: The elaborator sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the elaborator tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 5  11/02/21   Description: The combo sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing a mixture of sentence-composing tools.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use identifiers, describers, and elaborators in combination within their own sentences.   Supplemental Materials  All materials are created by the Killgallons, provided during each session, then emailed to participants to use and keep. About the Instructors             The co-instructors are widely recognized as innovators in teaching writing through sentence-level improvement. As co-authors, they have written many textbooks used by teachers within and beyond the United States, all featuring their sentence-composing approach.  Don Killgallon, M.A. (University of Maryland), M.L.A. and M.Ed. (Johns Hopkins University), is a veteran English and writing teacher, and the originator of the sentence- composing approach.  Jenny Killgallon, M.L.A.

Odyssey October 07, October 7, ThursdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 7, 2021 - November 11, 2021  Thursday, 6:30 PM ET (9 course hours + optional field trip)   This class will introduce students to the science of climate change through explorations of the archaeological remains of the great civilizations of the Americas. The rich archeological record left behind by the Olmec, the Maya, the Aztec and the Inca, have over the last few decades, given scholars great insights into how they used their environments and how in doing so, influenced the ecology of the Americas. The Maya in particular produced huge cities whose need for water and resources outpaced in many instances the ability of the environment to provide them. Students will explore the archaeological remains of these cultures from the early Americas through 3D models of objects, inscriptions and works of art and through readings aimed at building an understanding of the science of both past and present climate change. An optional field trip to the Library of Congress to see first-hand archaeological objects from Jay I.

OutdoorExplorations Affinity October 09, October 9, SaturdaySponsored by Outdoor Explorations Affinity and Hopkins San Francisco/Bay Area Experience the diverse wildlife of the Elkhorn Slough, named one of the top ten wildlife viewing areas in North America. The Elkhorn Slough at Moss Landing boasts the largest remaining raft of southern sea otters on the planet. Come paddle with these amazing endangered creatures, as well as sea lions, harbor seals, beautiful floating jellies, and migrating sea birds. This is an excellent paddle for beginners in stable double kayaks. Duration: 3 hours, including a short on-land safety orientation. What to expect? When you arrive, you'll meet your instructor or guide who will have you fill out a liability release. Your guide or instructor will then take you to get geared up, give you a safety talk, and then, accompany you to the dock where you will start your adventure. Afterward, don't forget to tip your guide! They work hard to ensure you have a great day on the water! What should I bring? What should I wear? Dress in layers and avoid wearing cotton, jeans, and heavy hiking boots. If possible, wear synthetic clothing such as fleece or Polypropylene. Also, consider bringing sunglasses with a retainer, a hat with a visor, sunscreen, appropriate footwear (i.e., booties, sandals, tennis shoes), waterproof windbreaker, snacks, water, extra clothing for after your tour, a camera, and binoculars (bring at your own risk)! Weather conditions can change quickly on the water and you are better off with too many layers than being cold! You will get a personal flotation device, paddling jacket, spray skirt, and paddle. You will be in a closed deck kayak, no wetsuit required. Will I get wet? Capsizing is always a possibility. You will use a closed-deck kayaks and be provided with a spray skirt that covers the cockpit and helps keep water out of your kayak.  Always bring extra clothes just in case. Will I tip over? A capsize is a rare occurrence because the kayaks are very stable. Many people that rent have never been in a kayak before and have little or no problem maneuvering. The safety video and staff instruction will help you increase your stability and greatly reduce your chance of ending up in the drink!  Can I bring a pet? At Elkhorn Slough, pets are not allowed on the boats.  This is because the Elkhorn Slough is a sensitive habitat for sea otters and harbor seals that can be disturbed by our pets. Who can attend? For insurance and safety reasons, there is a short list of requirements: Children must be at least 5 years old to go kayaking. Children 15 years or older are welcome to paddle a single kayak. All participants must sign a release, and children under 18 must have their release signed by a parent or legal guardian. Alcohol/drugs are not allowed before, or during, your rental. Children under 18 must be accompanied by at least one person over 25. All renters must know how to swim.
