Portfolio Once the portfolio is completed, UPLOAD to DU Assess-it. EMAIL a copy to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) DUE: March 14, midnight
Teaching Evaluations Please complete the teaching evaluations with honest feedback so that I can improve as a teacher and improve the class. Might I suggest you complete this right after you upload your portfolio. 1. Log in to webCentral.webCentral 2. Click the Courses tab. 3. Click the "Fill out Evaluations" link in the top right corner.
All final revisions are due Monday (March 10) by 11:59pm. This is the last chance to revise. I will not accept any more revisions after that time. You can revise assignments 1, 2 and 6. If you received a grade, you have two chances to revise to improve that grade. You may hear rumors that there’s this one student in the 6 o’clock class who was given an extra 24 or 48 or 72 hours to complete a revision. This is always a very special circumstance and is negotiated individually. I will not provide extensive comments on these final drafts.
Presentations will take place March 12. All students are expected to show up on time to give us enough time to get through all of the presentations. You will have 20 minutes to present, 5 minutes to set up. A good presentation of 15 minutes is better than a rambling 20 minute one. Turn in your GDD via email by 11:59pm, March 12. Email me separately your individual evaluations of each student in your group. It should have a sentence about what each member did, a sentence evaluation, and a number from 1 (poor) to 4 (excellent). Do so via email March 12.
Grades will be posted on the course website sporadically. However, I will send out a final grade- check email sometime next week before posting your OFFICIAL grade to the university. I will award achievement Gift Cards on March 12.
