Office hours: MW 10:20-11:10, TTh 12:10, and by arrangement
OPTIONAL extra credit this week: work on being a fantastic student! Go to http://www.engr.ncsu.edu/learningstyles/ilsweb.html Take the 44-question survey, then print your results. At the bottom of the results page click on the page that explains what all the results mean. Review all strategies suggested for someone who scores as you did, especially those that correspond to your learning style. Pick TWO strategies that you would be willing to try, and try them on the work I am assigning in our class. Write a paragraph after you try them on how they worked, and whether you'll use them again. Turn in your results and your paragraph for EXTRA CREDIT. If you want to know even more about learning styles, visit Gavilan College's own Jane Maringer's webpage:
Who says college students can't be generous donors?
Respond to the Snapshot's many problems by donating even $5 or $10 to a worthy organization. Check out Room to Read's list of the top 100 international groups at http://www.roomtoread.org/document.doc?id=837, or look for US social justice groups you like at http://www.socialworkdegree.net/social-justice-organizations/
My own personal Top Four:
Oxfam (money to refugees and the truly poor hit by disasters)
Second Harvest Food Bank (local work to end hunger)
Common Cause (against corruption in government)
Kiva (micro-loans YOU make to people who use the money well.)
