|Here is what I look like in case you have forgotten. I actually do exist.|
If I am frustrated with the plethora of "college closed" and "no classes" days as well as my absences, which means we have not been able to meet "face to face" hardly at all, then I know you all must be doubly frustrated. So, here is what we are going to do to rectify the situation: 1) All grades to date will have been posted by 10/19 in Blackboard; 2) since I am receiving questions via email, notes in my box, and so on (which is very confusing all around) I am opening a forum to address all concerns (of course you may also talk to me in person, but we do not meet again for a bit, so this is faster). In the forum you may ask questions anonymously and I will check them daily (usually at 6am or thereabouts, if not more often) and respond to each and every one.
Additionally, If you have not been here in a while be sure to check below for any assignments you might have missed. It is easy to find them by looking at the "Comments" links. If there are comments, there was an assignment. Due to the wonky schedule, anything completed by 10/19 will not be considered late.
Questions, Comments, Complaints: HERE. To comment anonymously, be sure you SIGN OUT of Google/Blogger. If you accidentally post something you regret Reply to your own post with "DELETE ME" in all caps. You should be able to delete your own post, but that does not always work.
