hi class: i am so so sorry that i am not there in class. i flew to denver on friday to see a college friend and his family, and thought i had a ticket home for sunday night. well, i went to print my boarding pass and was headed to the airport.......only to find out the ticket agent booked me home on a flight SATURDAY and not sunday. arrrrgh!
luckily, i guess, even though i am sad i am gonna miss it, the class for monday was scheduled to visit the library....a librarian there Cyndi Preston will give you a presentation and effective research techniques, then you will have a lot of time to actually start your research.
so, in that time, please start finding books/articles/materials for use with whatever topic you have selected. if you haven't picked just one topic, use this time to do preliminary research and decide what research materials are available and then make a decision.
again, i am so sorry i am not there. we have a LOT of work to do in this the final week of the course...but at least your class-time monday will be spent very very productively.
