On Finishing Up! (All)

The following notes pertain to all, in different ways.

On Your Final Research Projects (FRP)
1. Be sure that you write your FRP consistent with ALL the expectations/guidelines.
2. As such, use the FRP exercises (1-5) that we did in class (and/or see former blogs) as a "check-list" for what should be included in each section of your FRP.
3. Work with a fellow Learning Community (LC) member or peer and edit each other's work.
4. Be sure to add an Introduction (short paragraph or two framing the text at the beginning) and Conclusion (short paragraph or two as a concluding reflection) into your text, letting the reader know what the text is going to cover (Introduction) and what the big ideas were (Conclusion) all about.

Final Examination Day/s
Note: (1) On the following days, you all will be handing in your FRP and taking your Final Learning Assessments (FLA). On the FLA be sure to make arrangements to bring in your own typed copies of the FLA to class. (2) Be sure to call and/or e-mail me with relevant questions.
1. BSU@9, Friday May 16, 2008 at 1oam.

On Extra Credit

2. Remember that all EC assignments need to have appropriately cited endnotes, if you want any credit.

Office Hours
1. MWF from 9 - 11am, except on the day of a given final examination period.
Note: Be sure to visit with me so that we can ensure that we are on the same page pertaining to the comments on your FRP drafts that I intend to hand back on Monday.

Final Words

Thanks for the opportunity to learn and grow
, I only hope that you all were afforded the same opportunities that I have been afforded.

Again, to ensure your success, taking advantage of opportunities that present themselves, be sure to do extra credit work this weekend (BSU students) to get the best grade possible.
