Weekend: Homework to read assigned excerpts from “Writing Down the Bones” and “Bird by Bird.” Will take a quiz over the reading first thing in the lab on Monday.
A few quick notes about our week. I’ll keep track of who participates and how often. Each day’s discussion is worth 15 points, and the four discussions combined are worth 10% of your final grade. To earn fifteen points, you need to contribute at least 3 times in the discussion.
