Class Procedures and Reminders
My schedule. I don't check email as often on the weekends, but definitely send me any questions you have. If it's something urgent, I'll be sure to get back to you as soon as I get back online. If it's not urgent, I'll get back to you on Monday morning.
Your schedule. I'll be sending an email reminder on Saturday and on Sunday if your preferred schedule for the class has Week 2 starting this weekend. I cannot change the due dates in Canvas (they are the same for everybody), but I hope you will figure out what will be the best schedule for you. The class will go so much more smoothly if you are doing the work based on your own schedule instead of based on the Canvas due dates. :-)
Project Stack. Starting in Week 2, you will be turning in one assignment each week by email: the project assignment. Because emails sometimes go missing, I keep a list of those project assignments as they come in, so those of you who are working ahead can check to make sure I received your assignment: The Stack.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Books. A great quote from Game of Thrones: A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge. That is why I read so much.
Writing. I don't know about you, but I far prefer typing to handwriting: demons? or lemons?
Spelling. Another sneaky word pair that the spellchecker cannot help with: TIDE v. TIED.
