It is time to show what you have learned this semester! We are looking forward to outstanding presentations!

Everyone in your group must be present for your entire Conference session on Dec 1, 2 or 3 when your presentations will be officially graded.

Here is the Rubric for your Rubric for the Final Group Poster Presentation

You will also present for 30 minutes at Celebration Day on Dec. 4th. Plan to spend at least an additional half hour evaluating presentations from your peers. Everyone should complete (individually, not as a group!) four total evaluations of other presentations at Celebration Day (2 science and 2 from other disciplines.) These evaluations will be available at Celebration Day.

For Portfolio 3, you will also need to complete your individual evaluation of group dynamics as well as the online survey of your entire learning community experience. Bring these along with your Reflective Letter to the event on Thursday if you would like to turn in your final Portfolio before leaving.


Seminar will NOT meet this week; instead, you are required to attend your chosen conference session on Mon, Tues, or Wed as well as Celebration Day on Thursday, November 29 for at least 1 hour.


The Turkey Day Extra Credit is due by the Monday after Thanksgiving.

I do not want a folder! Please just staple it all together and turn it in to the blue crate in my office, FC 253 by 1pm on Friday!


Because of student presentations, exams, and the holidays, I will be holding office hours by appointment only for the rest of the semester. Please email me if you have any questions or would like to set a time to meet with me!


Our final Seminar class day will be next Monday/Tuesday. We will have a relaxing and fun day debriefing the semester! Final grades will be posted online by Monday, Dec 8. You must contact me by Wed., Dec 10 regarding any grading errors or excused absences. After Dec. 10, all grades for this class become final.
