Final Grades

As explained in class this week, I will finish grading your Portfolios and will have final grades posted no later than next Tuesday, August 14. By the middle of next week you will be able to access your grade online through MyCNM. The only grades I can give for this class are CR (credit, the passing grade) and NC (no credit, the failing grade).

If you would like to know sooner than that how you did, feel free to email me at english075@gmail.com. I will reply as soon as I have a final grade for you.

Portfolios Due

As explained in class, your Portfolio is due at the start of class later this week–Wednesday, August 8/Thursday, August 9. Bring the revised version of each of the three assignments you have been working on for the Portfolio. We will meet for about 30 minutes, but this will count for the entire 2.5 hours of attendance, and submitting your Portfolio will count as the one-hour participation credit for this week.

Here is another exercise you can complete to earn additional attendance credit. Begin by reading Adapt, by Tim Harford. then write a two-paragraph response to it. Post your response here as a comment. This will count as one hour of additional attendance credit.
