Grade changes, Chavez quiz and Exam 3

Hello all 1301 students,

If you took the Chavez quiz, your grade has been raised 10 points or more to account for the two dropped questions and the two scrambled answer choices.

Online 1301 students only: The grades for Exam 3 have been raised 10 points.

Hello everyone,
I am working on grading your paragraphs but I'm getting a lot of this, and it's slowing me down. I'll stay at it.

Getting Caught up

Hello everyone,

I've been busy working on Unit 4, and I had to neglect your emails for a couple of days in order to get the work done. I should be able to catch up with your emails this afternoon or evening. I will mostly be grading discussion paragraphs this week and making the promised adjustments to the grade book. The post below has more about Unit 4.

Unit 4


I've been busy this week going through Unit 4 to make sure we didn't face the same problems we faced with Unit 3 again. All the quizzes should be good, now, with questions that can be answered correctly by referring to the textbook. I recommend this strategy. I have increased the time from 90 minutes to 2 hours.

The learning module for Banner, Elizabether Cady Stanton is all set and ready to go. There will be no discussion paragraph assigned for this book, just the quiz.

The quiz questions from The Lost Land will not appear in an exam this semester.

The Unit 4 exam will be comprised entirely of questions that have previously appeared in quizzes. For technical reasons, I was unable to make that happen for Unit 3.

I think you will find this last unit a satisfying intellectual experience.

Chavez, Lost Land discussion link

Here is picture of where the discussion link is for Chavez, The Lost Land. This is what you should see when you click on the Chavez, The Lost Land learning module inside the Unit 3 folder. Some have had trouble finding this. If you will include your section number in your comments, I can respond more specifically to your particular situation. I look forward to reading your discussions.
