This is the post for the week of October 11, 2016.
Course Plan Notes
Remember that your work at this point on in the course should focus on the projects that you outlined in your Coursework Proposal. That means that you should follow the schedule that you set for yourself and begin your work.
Your work on your projects is self-paced because everyone has a different project plan and schedule.
Also because you are all working on different plans, be aware that the Canvas gradebook may not reflect your actual grade. In particular, the participation grade may be off since some of the discussions are optional. You will argue for the grade you should receive for participation in your final exam.
Work for the Week of October 11
The readings and quizzes that you need to complete by Monday, 11/17, are listed on last week’s post.
Continue work on your projects, following the schedule you set in your Coursework Proposal. I will provide instructions for turning in your work in next week’s post. All your work is ultimately due by November 30, with a grace period that ends on December 7 (the last day of classes). I encourage you to turn your work in earlier, so that you can revise if you need to.
During the second half of the course, you will be working on your own projects and at your own schedule. There will not be readings to discuss in Canvas, but I will provide some optional discussion questions for those of you working on meeting the expectations in your Participation Logs. Here are the first six:
These discussions are all due on November 11, with a grace period of November 18 (the Friday before Thanksgiving break). I am giving you as much time as I can to complete the work, but I urge you not to wait until the last minute.
