The papers (e-versions) are now in the Angel Dropbox, and final grades have been submitted to the Registrar’s Office. If you turned in a paper version of your paper, you can stop by my office to pick it up beginning January 10. I will be away from email until January 7.
Happy holidays, and have a good break!
You know how in The Wizard of Oz, the wizard says “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”?
Please, please–pay no attention to the averages in Angel. Because of Angel’s gradebook structure, it can’t calculate some of the assignments accurately.
You have all the information you need to do this yourself: the percentages in the syllabus http://public.wsu.edu/~campbelld/engl372/sched372f12.htm and your record of your grades. That is what I use to calculate your grades, in an Excel spreadsheet. I don’t use Angel to calculate grades at all; I just post them there so that you can see them.
Here are the links to the final projects for class members who are doing a web project. If you haven’t sent yours yet, please email the link to me when you submit the project.

The grades on Angel have been updated, including the total score for blogs. Scores cannot total more that “30″ since 30/30 is 100%.
The blog assignment is now completed, so no additional posts are necessary or will be counted. Since there were no comments possible on the last (extra credit) blog post due yesterday, if you completed that, you received a “3/3″ for it.
Today is the first day of our final presentations. Remember, your paper or project is not due until 11/29 even if you are presenting today.
Check the schedule to be sure that you know the day of your presentation. The schedule is here:
If you have materials to show the class, email them to yourself so that you can bring them up on the class computer.
We will not be filling out the response cards as we did for the formal reports.
