Class Procedures and Reminders
Looking ahead. As of today, there are five weeks plus Dead Week left in this semester, and it's good to have your plan in place for finishing up the semester, especially if your goal is to finish early. If you are aiming for an A, you should have 245 points right now, or around 265 if you want to finish before Dead Week. For more details, see this Grading Chart.
Canvas Tech Tips. As I mentioned yesterday, there are some new Canvas Tech Tips that I wrote up in response to people's questions and comments in response to the Canvas Survey... and remember: you can do extra credit Tech Tips anytime; there's no need to wait until the end of the week.
Project Stack. As usual, there is a HUGE stack of projects in the stack at the beginning of the week, and you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Time. I thought this would be a fun follow-up to the flowchart from yesterday: A Field Guide to Procrastinators. As you can guess, I am an Internet Researcher.
GrammarCatz. Like many of the GrammarCatz, this kitteh has trouble with comma splices.
