  • Class this week

    Hi All,

    I’d like to use class this week to meet with groups and discuss draft projects. In order to make the best use of time, I’d like to meet with half of our groups on Tuesday and half on Thursday. I’ve divided groups between the two days as follows:

    Tuesday (4/27)
    – Devin, Olivia, Izaiah
    – Gideon, Rachel, Kevin N
    – Grace, John O, Stefan
    – John D, Natalie, Ben E

    Thursday (4/29)
    – Declan, Nick H, Julian, Morgan
    – Janie, Nick N, Mikala
    – Ryan, Mike O, Noah, Mac, Kyle

    If your group absolutely cannot make it’s scheduled time, let me know ASAP and we’ll work out another meeting time.

    See you then!

  • News Stories and Class This Week

    Hi All,

    I’ve posted some very brief thoughts in response to your News Stories last week. You can watch them here. I summarize some key things I noticed in the news stories last week that you might want to think about as you complete your own projects!

    We’ll meet on the class Zoom call tomorrow, as usual, for groups to check in and keep working on their final projects. See you there!

  • Final Project Topic Selection

    Hi All,

    Remember that, as discussed in class on Tuesday, it’s time to choose topics and form groups for the final project! To this end, I need you to fill out this form indicating which of the pre-approved topics on the list found in the final project assignment description you would most like to work on. I will try to match you with a group interested in your first choice topic first, if that’s impossible I will fall back to your second and your third.

    If folks really, really want to propose a topic of their own, send me an email. I’ll hear you out, but I strongly prefer that folks use the pre-approved topics this semester.

    I will be on the Zoom call tomorrow if folks have questions. Drop by if I can help! Otherwise, fill out the form by Friday, and I will see you after break!

  • Week of 3/8

    Hi All,

    Just a reminder, we’ll be having an all-class synchronous meeting via the class Zoom call tomorrow, Tuesday March 9, at the usual class time (11am).

    Our goal for this meeting will be to discuss the final project and think about shared topics for group final projects. Review the list of “pre-approved topics” on the final project description page (scroll down a bit, it’s there). I’d like us all to work on one of these topics for the final project this semester.

    I will see you in class tomorrow!
