Announcement (Dec. 1, 2010)

Hello Class,

I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend! I am writing to let you know that I will not be able to meet with you all today due to my illness. I have a sore throat and literally have lost my voice, coupled with incessant coughing and sneezing. I would like to make the following arrangement for today’s (December 1, 2010) class.


You may choose to go to our classroom or work wherever on your final critique project. The critique guidelines are available on wiki at http://edci6300introresearch.pbworks.com/w/page/32415297/aricle-critique-guidelines. I’ll post a sample of the article critique and oral presentation guidelines on wiki by today.


Since it’s the end of the semester, our last project (Project 12) will be your self-reflection. Please submit to me by midnight today (Dec. 1) your thoughts about your learning experience in this class. In particular, I want you to address the following four components in your self-reflection project: 1) your thoughts about your learning outcome in this class; 2) your thoughts about ways/strategies to enhance your success in the future; 3) your suggestions for the instructor to enhance the effectiveness of this course; and 4) your recommendations for future students that will make them more successful in this class.

There is a great exhibit at the old library on the history of disabilities. It takes about 1 and a half hours or more to read it all. I would like for you to view it and write up a 2-3 page short summary afterwards and submit it to me by next Wednesday to get one extra course credit if you are interested.

Last but not least, do take a moment to evaluate this course on Blackboard by Dec. 5. Your feedback is invaluable to future cohorts taking this course!


Please email me if you have any questions. I’ll see you next week for your critique presentations!

Dr. Yan Yang
