Things are generally in wind-up mode; I’m working on the Gilmour paper grades. . . Johnna is working on getting us a picture of where you stand in terms of your posts.
Not too much action in terms of arts events this week; ongoing shows at each of the campus galleries, with a new show being set up at the Ferg gallery. Hilaritas Holiday concert starts Friday and goes into the weekend.
Be strategic about your time, but you’ve got room over the next week to ten days to do whatever writing you’d like on your blog to send signals that you’ve been thinking about things and proceeding this semester in the spirit of the course.
We’ll do wrap up work this Thursday, and then the following Thursday will be an optional in-class final exam, an opportunity to bump your grade 5% or about the equivalent of a half-grade. Essentially, I’ll give you a couple of prompts similar to those you’ve received in my blog all semester, and you can write about them in class. I’d encourage folks who think they are sitting in the D and C range to take the task on. . . if you think you’re sitting in the A or B range, you might have better uses for the two hours.
See you soon.
