As part of the Learning Communities program, Prof. Garral and I will be hosting a last-day-of-classes pizza party for our class on Wednesday (December 14). We will meet up at Patsy’s Pizza at 12:30 pm (sharp!)
Patsy’s has several locations. We’ll be going to the one on the east side of Third Avenue between 34th and 35th streets.
I came across an interesting find while I was doing my homework and thought I’d share it here for anyone who’s interested:
It’s an article referencing the article we had a class discussion on “Is Google Making Us Stupid” by Nicholas Carr
here’s the link http://www.wfs.org/node/1000
Use this calendar service on the web to schedule a time with me. Appointments should be 15 minutes long and take place between 9 am and 5 pm.
Originally, the controlled vocabulary homework (as described on the course website) was going to be due on Wednesday, November 2. I’ve pushed it back to Monday, November 7, to give us time to work on the subject of controlled vocabulary in class.
I just finished grading everyone’s homework that asked for you to do the topic development worksheet and do an annotated bibliography of five sources. For those of you who submitted the homework as two separate documents, you’ll find the grade for the assignment on the topic development worksheet.
I’ve now graded the homework from the October 3 assignment where you were asked to find sources of background information on the subject of peer review. Please check your document in Google Docs to see my comments and your grade.
As Prof. Garral and I try to plan actitivies for this learning community, we will need to have a good idea about what hours of the week you’re in class. Please help complete this weekly class schedule grid. Thanks!
This afternoon, I updated the homework assignment that is due on October 3. You can check it out on the course website.
From this point forward, I will expect to you to print out any required reading and to bring it to class on the day that we will be discussing and using it. It is absolutely essential that you do the reading carefully and completely; if you haven’t read the material for the day, there is little reason to come to class, as you won’t be prepared to participate in a meaningful and constructive way.
