Work for the Week of January 27
Please complete these tasks:
If you have not registered on the forums, follow the instructions in the 01/20 post to do so by 11:55 PM Wednesday, 1/28. Be sure to verify that you have read the syllabus as well. I will turn off open forum registration at midnight Wednesday to lock out the spambots.
Go to Tests & Quizzes in Scholar, and complete the reading quizzes on Chapter 4 and Chapter 6 of Markel by 11:55 PM on Monday, February 2. The syllabus mentions a syllabus quiz. We’re going to skip that for now. See the policies for quizzes on the course logistics page.
Review and analyze some example bio statements in the forums. If you have any questions (today or in the future) about the first assignment, go to the Questions about Project 1 topic in the forum and add them. You can skim through this topic for answers as well.
