Welcome to Seminar!
Gearing up for FYS & Exam 2 feedback

  • Mindful Minute
    • I have recommended that some of you come and see me regarding your grade in History. Please come and see me if you have any questions about whether or not you should remain in History!!!
    • This process has to be done in person before the round building closes.
  • FYS: Sign-up for a time slot by today before 5 pm, or I will sign up the team for a time.
    • Be sure that the time slot has been confirmed or it will be removed.
    • As of very late last night, there were 3 teams who had not signed up for a time slot and four pending time slots.
  • FYS Practice on Wednesday!
    • Each team will need to have their laptop and presentation ready to go for a practice run. Classmates will provide feedback!
  • Final FYS Presentation due Wednesday, November 29, by 11:59 pm in BlackBoard - No presentation, no presenting!
    • What happens if you do not cite sources within an assignment?
  • If your group is one of the groups that was told you needed to submit a new draft of the FYS presentation, be advised that it will be due TODAY by 11:59 pm via email!!! (I originally said 5 pm, but I am giving you more time.)
    • If it isn't submitted, then you won't be able to present on Friday.
  • Assignment descriptions for FYS Final Draft, FYS Peer Evaluation, and the FYS Presentation Evaluations are in BlackBoard. Please read them!
    • Presentation evaluations are due in BlackBoard. Do not turn in the hard copies.
