For this week, I want you to focus on Kelly’s Ecological Theory and Liberation Psychology in Chapter 5 (these are quite short). You’re encouraged to skim the rest of the chapter. Then I want you to pop over to adrienne maree brown’s Emergent Strategy text and read from p. 13 (header: What is emergent strategy?) to the Lineage header on p. 25 and p. 41 (begins with principles of emergent strategy) to p. 50. Then choose at least one element (chapter) to read in depth (Fractal, Adaptive, Interdependence and Decentralization) . You are encouraged to skim all of it up until the Nonlinear and Iterative chapter. You are also encouraged to skim the full introduction, and make note of the lineage on which this book is based.
In your reflection, you’re welcome to cover anything that stands out to you. However, you are encouraged to at least briefly talk about the element you chose to read more about Describe/define the concept, describe why you chose it, and then explain why it matters. What can we learn from or through that concept? What do you want others to understand?
Also consider, why read this book? Why listen to this author?
