Just a quick reminder, the offices at Fuller will be closed next Friday seeing as how it’s Good Friday and all. So if you want to hand in your papers personally you’ll need to do it by Five on Thursday. You hand in all papers to the SIS advising office, which is on the second floor of Payton. There are two other options for you however: first, there will be one big box for paper submissions on Friday where you can drop you paper off (I think it will be in the Garth), and second you can email me your paper no later than 5pm Friday.

It looks like I will be doing most of my grading on Wednesdays, which means that if you don’t hear from me until Wednesday or Thursday don’t worry, I just haven’t seen your blog posts yet. The way I normally work is that I’ll leave at least one comment, sometimes more, on your blog weekly just to let you know I’ve been there. My comments will be either a) give you more direction for reflection and posting in the future, b) let you know something I thought was blown away by or c) let you know I have visited. If I have any major questions or concerns I’ll email you.
Every week you can earn up to five points for posting on your blog, which works out to be 50% of your grade. It’s in your favor to do as many as possible, but it’s also okay if you miss a couple. If you haven’t done a post, I won’t try and track you down and find out, I leave all that up to you. I do expect Masters level writing and reflection in the posts and want you to carefully do all your writing. That said, I am looking for your engagement with the material, and reflection on key issues that are based on the texts and lectures. I also want to see it be meaningful you (if possible). If you have that, then you’ll do fine.
I am not sure if all of you have sent me your blogs or not, I’ve never had so much trouble getting email before, it’s really weird. But if you don’t see your name in this list then bring your name, email and blog address on a small piece of paper to class. Thanks!
Hey Everyone, it appears some of your are sending me emails but they’re not going through. I am not sure why this is happening, I’ve checked my junk mail and there’s nothing there. Anyways, two almost fool-proof ways of reaching me are either through the contact button at the top of this website, or the one on my own blog. If you don’t see your name in the sidebar, I still haven’t received an email from you whether you’ve actually sent it to me. Sorry for the trouble.
Hi everyone, we are really excited to have you in class this quarter and look forward to the next ten weeks together. This is the class blog where I will post announcements, resources, and other things from class. Be sure to check back here at least a couple times a week. You will also find your classmate’s blog links to the right of this post in the sidebar.
As a first order of business you may want to Download the syllabus here.Second, I wanted to give some reminders about your blogs.
Second, if you haven’t set up your blog, you need to do that now. Follow the step-by-step instructions here. Next you need to email me the URL for your blog. It will look something like http://YOURNAME.wordpress.com.
Third, in terms of assignments please read the syllabus carefully, everything you need to know is there. You need to post one reflection (50 words) per class period, on the day of that class (by 12am that night). The rest of your assignments (classmate response – 100 words and reading responses – 75 words per reading selection) are do on Mondays before class time. I don’t accept late blog posts.
Finally, if you have any special name requests or how you do or don’t want your name displayed on the blog let me know.
Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.
Hey Everyone, thanks for the great questions and conversation today in class. Here are slides from the presentation. Also, thanks for the patience on the technical difficulties, I found what I needed to do (Steve you were on the right track) in the instructions (imagine that!)…
Hey everyone, first I need to commend all of you on doing such a great job this quarter. You are all doing fantastic on your readings, responses and class reflections. Class discussions have not only been engaging but well informed and I am excited to see how this all comes together in the end for your projects. Keep up the hard work, though I am sure by now you are feeling the wear and tear of the quarter. Can you believe it’s week 5?
Onto the readings – I have one request – When you do you titles for the reading reflections will you include the Week, the title of the article (or chapter number if applicable), and the author of the textbook you are reading, whether castle, ashcroft, sug. or Fullenbach. That would make it so much easier for us tracking with you. Thank you!
As always if you have any questions please let me know.
