HW12 due 9/8 (9/9 for 12G): Website and Registration and more…

PLEASE, IF POSSIBLE, BRING IN A REAM OF COPY PAPER ON MONDAY! I WOULD BE QUITE GRATEFUL…

ALSO, we will begin The Stranger in little over a week! Unfortunately, we have only a few copies on hand, so if you can purchase your own copy, please do so.

* Be sure you closely read the course syllabus!*

1. This weekend you should register for the class website, Blackboarddreams.com. To do this, you must scroll to the bottom of the homepage and click “Register.” Your username should be your Full Name (First and Last).  Be sure to register by midnight Sunday. I will shut down registration at that point. Once you register, respond to the welcome thread/question on the forum for YOUR CLASS. Again, this should be completed BEFORE midnight on Sunday. While you’re at it, explore the website!

2.  Remember, you will have an in-class writing assessment on Man’s Search for Meaning.  Just a hint: The essay will require that you use Part I of the text to illuminate/illustrate the philosophical/psychological conclusions of Part II.  This in-class essay will take place on Tuesday for C band and Wednesday for G band.  You will be able to use your copy of the text as well as notes during the period.

3.  On Monday, I expect you to have all supplies in place including class binder. You should keep the course syllabus in your Binder in the appropriate section! Stay organized…

4.  I will distribute the philosophical packets on Monday so that you can get a jump on the reading. (Sartre’s “Existentialism is a Humanism” and Barrett’s “Encounter with Nothingness”)

5.  Have a wonderful weekend!

6. And remember, “Children need encouragement. So if a kid gets an answer right, tell him it was a lucky guess. That way, he develops a good, lucky feeling.”
