Final Announcements for Fall 2019

You have reached the end of Week 15... and the end of the class! Below you will find some important information about the end of the class:

Check your blogs for comments. People have been leaving comments on blog posts and blog comment walls up until the last day of class, including Friday morning, so take a look at the comments on your blog to see if you find anything new.

Blogs and Websites. I hope very much that you will want to leave your Storybooks and Portfolios online; more information here: Storybook and Blog Options.

Class Announcements. If you are subscribed to the class announcements by email, you can decide if you want to stay on the list or unsubscribe (there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email). Each semester the announcements is a mix of new and old items, so perhaps you would enjoy staying on the list just for fun. :-)

Grades. You can see your total points in Canvas (410/A, 360/B, 320/C, 301/D), and I'll file the grades in the Banner System on Friday afternoon.

Course Evaluation. If you have not filled out the course evaluation yet at, I hope you will take a minute to do that — you might even win an iPad! It's always my personal goal to get the response rate up to around 75% or even better... and I need your help! Here's what the current response rate shows:

Advice Padlet. There is a Padlet to share advice with future students, and some of you may have already added some advice there back in Week 14 (thank you for that!). If you have other thoughts to add, please feel free to do that now: Advice Padlet.

And, last but not least, a big THANK YOU to everybody for all your great work in this class. I had a wonderful time this semester, and I hope you had fun too!

Finally, I thought you might enjoy this amazing video of Eric Whitacre's virtual choir, composed of thousands of voices singing together to tell a beautiful story: Fly to Paradise.

With wishes of peace and joy in many languages...

As always, see the
