Farewell for now

It’s been quite a year, and we have all learned and grown so much!  We started out on campus, having our barbarians sack Rome, persuading our UN to help our African country, learning the map of Asia, and experiencing Japanese culture with our bunkasai.   We got to experience the feudal system, living as monarch, knight, peasant or serf.  After the plague took out 1/3 of our class, we transitioned to the Renaissance and started our research.  Little did we know how a pandemic in the real world would change our lives.   

We had to be flexible, patient, and persistent in our transition to distance learning.   We figured out how to attach files, use Teams, read directions, zoom, and budget our time.  You’ve learned some great new skills while we’ve been at a distance. Your most recent project looked at the events in our lives today that will have a major impact on our future as a country.  Other issues, too, will require the perseverance of your generation.  I encourage you with the words of Mahatma Gandhi, Be the change you wish to see in the world.”   

I will be having an “open house zoom” on Thursday afternoon for anyone who would like to chat and say farewell for now.   

Seize your summer.  Enjoy some well-deserved relaxation.  I look forward to a time when it’s safe to all come on campus.  Be well and take care! 

Last day for late work - 6/5

For anyone that has late work that needs to be turned in, the last day is Friday.

Optional zoom meeting to discuss protests & riots

This last week has seen protests & riots springing up around the nation.  If you'd like to talk about it from a social science and/or historical perspective, feel free to join.  This will not be for a grade.  It's just a discussion setting.  
Malynn Chetanna is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Late Work

Reminder:  I check assignments on Friday (or sometimes the weekend).  If you turn assignments in after that time, I will give you credit, but you will have to let me know that you did them.  I do not go back every day to check if someone has submitted late work.  Thank you!

Bonus spirit points

As you know, each of the next few weeks has a theme.  For a bonus point, post a picture of yourself in the theme on Teams.  For example, this week is college spirit.  So, wear something from your favorite college or make a sign for it.

Scientific Revolution Quiz on Wednesday!

We'll be having an open note/textbook quiz this Wednesday on the Scientific Revolution!

Extra Credit

Extra Credit - Some students have asked about extra credit - Choose a section of the book we haven't studied yet.  Read the section and then create a poster, song, rap, ppt, etc... for it.  I'll be posting these when we do that section in order to help other students learn it better.  Due date is just before we've studied that section.  Up to 10 points extra credit.  Although you may do it more than once, I will only give you extra credit for the 1st time.

scoring mistake on the test

Unfortunately, I made a mistake and didn't enter "1" in the  boxes for #12 and #19, so you didn't get credit for those even if your answers were correct.  Sorry about that.  I will have to hand grade those.  I will modify your score when I transfer to Aeries. 


PLEASE READ:  As I'm going through and grading your paragraphs, I am noticing that many people have assignments that say "turned in" but don't actually have any work connected.  Please go back and check your entries and do any re-attaching you need to do.  For now, I'm presuming it is a mistake.  I will check back in a couple of days.  If you haven't re-attached your work, I'll change your scores to 0s which you won't be able to make up. 

Online zoom meetings - what if you miss it?

I will occasionally have zoom meetings.  I am aware, though that everyone's schedule is different and some are more challenging.  It's okay if you don't make it to the meeting.  I will always either give an alternative option for those who can't come or just make the meeting itself optional.  It's great for connecting, but it won't be critical to anyone's grade.
