Announcements Page / Start Page
Check this page once a day. Details here affect your grade. Do not expect important announcements to be made in class. They are given here, not there.
Access to the course Web site (schedule, assignments, deadlines, etc.) is via the tabs to the left.
Newest announcements are on the top. Remember to read down until you see an announcement you are familiar with. I tend to make many announcements at the same time which pushes things south.
EA105 (love, summer version) 5/19/2013: I will probably begin posting announcements for this course on Friday. If I need to reach you before that, you will get notice via a bSpace email.
EA105 (love, spring version) 5/19/2013: Thanks to all of you who wrote concerning your films and whether they would work for other students. The summer students will have serious time pressure in terms of locating films, so this is very helpful to them. Thank you.
Cross-course 5/19/2013: I have reported grades to the University for all three courses. I have also written the various emails related to class to the various students so there is no need to keep watching for any more "business" emails. If I don't have time to write for a while, congratulations to all graduating seniors, you did it! And to all others: happy summer!
EA109 (tea) 5/18/2013: Posted to bSpace essay grades. Apologies ahead of time for any spelling errors -- I did not recheck my rapid typing. It was a hectic day.
EA105 (love) 5/17/2013: Posted to bSpace IE and JCS grades.
Updates 5/17/2013 (in other words, please keep checking this page):
J144 (MB) — 1) I will probably submit grades to the University tonight. 2) I still have a few emails to send to students, please watch your in box.
EA105 (love) (*prior romance course students, can you please read #3 of this paragraph?) — 1) For extra credit now, you are welcome to send an email to me recommending your film(s), or not, for this class. I will start teaching again in about 2 weeks. Use keyword ourfilms. 2) Once I am finished grading, at some point I will post to bSpace the headline observations and conclusions from the JCS. You can get an overview of the strongest class opinions from that. It might be interesting. 3) If you feel this class is one that should continue to be offered, a very brief and respectful email to the EALC Department Chair (Mark Csikszentmihalyi) or a comment to the EALC student adviser (Jan Johnson) might be effective. Why it was helpful to you would probably be the best information to share. This class will not be offered in the fall and is not currently scheduled to be offered in the spring or at any other time either, although spring course decisions, in my case, seem to be ongoing and made from about last month up through November.
EA109 (tea) — 1) Stayed tuned. I hope to grade essays tomorrow but I am running about 1.5 hours late at the moment.
J144 (MB) 5/16/2013: Posted to bSpace essay grades. That was a great set of essays and, except for the time pressure aspect, it was very pleasurable spending the day with them. Also, a couple of you have been concerned about Midterm 02 (the rescoring of the one question). Those new scores do not show on bSpace but they are on the gradebook.
J144 (MB) 5/16/2013: I have finished logging in the J144 essays. I have one student who wrote early that s/he would not be able to meet the deadline. I hope that student submits very soon since I will be grading these today. I have one student whose last name begins with "I" and who sent me an email but failed to attach an essay. Please check your email!
Cross-course 5/15/2013: If all goes well, I will log in then grade J144 essays tomorrow (Thursday) but will probably finish late at night and not upload grades. I have events and appointments through 2 PM so you probably won't hear from me regarding log in unless I can't open or find your essay. Then, Friday, I will grade EA105 IEs and JCSs. I will try to finish these in a day as well. If so, I will grade EA109 essays Saturday. There still remains the calculation of extra credit, the triple checking of excel sheets, some participation grade issues, some individual student issues and uploading to the University. Starting Sunday for three days I have about seven events related to graduation. If I cannot wrap up things before Sunday, I will return to grading on Wednesday. I will continue to make announcements as I go along. You can follow if interested.
EA109 (tea) 5/15/2013: Posted to bSpace Final Exam grades.
EA109 (tea) 5/15/2013: I have safely on my computer all essays for this class, and all were on time. Thank you!
EA109 (tea) 5/14/2013: If you would like your midterm returned, please contact me. I will grade the final for this class tomorrow.
J144 (MB) 5/14/2013: Posted to bSpace Final Exam grades. There are also various statistics in a folder on bSpace.
EA109 (tea) 5/13/2013: Posted to bSpace Midterm 03 grades. See everyone tomorrow bright and early at 8 AM !
