Hope you are all settling into the new term, well-rested after the holidays.
Just a reminder that a few of your essays are waiting to be picked up in the Humanities and Languages office (100 Hazen Hall). If you didn’t get yours back before the holidays, that is where it is.
Anyone off campus this term drop me a line and I will post it to you.
with tomorrow’s, and any other, exams!
“The science of studying: How students can put their brains to best use,” Nicole Mortillaro, CBC News (Dec. 5, 2016): “Exams can be stressful, but scientific research offers tips on how students can improve their marks.”
The exam for this course is scheduled for Friday December 9th at 7pm in the G. Forbes Elliot Athletics Centre (row 4). You will have three hours though you likely won’t need the full time. The exam is closed book but you may bring one sheet of letter-sized paper with writing or printing on it. I would suggest the most important things to include would be the titles of the course readings, years of publication, and the authors’ names. Anyone making special arrangements to write, be sure to double-check those arrangements with Student Services.
Hello all! I think I now have blog URLs and presentation topics from most of you. Anyone still not accounted for, please get back to me soon.
Every year UNBSJ hosts an excellent reading series organized by the Lorenzo Society. I am offering bonus marks for either of two levels of engagement:
- Dipping your toes: for each reading you attend, you will receive 0.5% added to your final grade. There are five readings scheduled this term.
- Going for a swim: for each brief review you post on your class weblog, you will receive up to an additional 0.5% added to your final grade, for a total of up to 1% for each.
The first reading of the term is scheduled for Wednesday September 14. Debra Komar will be reading from Black River Road, a 19thc true-crime narrative set in Saint John. The other readings will be on campus but this one will be at the New Brunswick Museum in the Mary Oland Theatre at 7:30PM.
There should be a more detailed brochure coming shortly. I will link to it here. All readings are free.
