Frequently Asked Questions:
A. Why should I complete assignments that are not listed above? In order to get the 10 percent participation grade you must complete all assignments. I will provide one type of feedback by analysing and discussing your peer responses, like in a classroom, so that you can hear different points of view as well as my professoinal analysis.
B. How will I know “how I am doing” in this class? It is a common expectation that you keep track of your own work. Also, intrinsic motivation, your reasons for taking this course, almost never are limited to getting a grade. You should know whether you are learning something you value. As far as the course grade, this is a mandated task that is based on college learning outcomes provided to me. The 5 assignments listed are those that best provide you an opportunity to evidence your learning of those outcomes. The other assignments help you prepare for this assessment.
C. Will I get feedback or confirmation for everything I submit? At this time there is no technology available through Kingsborough that would allow for this in high quality or that would follow federal laws and guidelines. When you submit a google form I get it just like when you send an email provided you push the submit button. You should always keep copies of your work. I will let you know if you are missing anything that would affect your grade and give you time to submit it.
D. Is there a book for this class? There is no textbook for this class. I provide the free course materials. IF you want a recommendation to buy a book related to this course, feel free to email me. I have several based on your particular interests and needs.
