YOUR FAILURE TO VISIT THIS PAGE REGULARLY MAY CAUSE YOU MUCH GRIEF!
are in reverse chronological order--You should go through all announcements since your last visit, as simple common sense would suggest! NOTE: excuses such as "I did not know this was available via the class homepage," or "I did not have time to go to the class home page," and so on, will not be tolerated. In this class, intellectual laziness has its price: a poor grade.

Man, do I really have to tell you this?
per e-mail you have been sent, important information about the final exam, extra-credit, make-ups, grades, etc. is available here.
2) I have given you a lot of breaks in this class. To those who have taken advantage of these breaks, here is another really big break for you: The term paper project is now optional. You don't have to do it if you don't want to. :)
3) However, if you still wish to do the term paper project, then Test 5 will be worth 10% and the term paper will be worth 10%. The topic, instructions, and due date for the term paper project are available via the link on the left.
4) If you have any questions then (a) make sure your e-mail is in the e-mail format specified in the syllabus, and (b) you must quote the exact wording of the sentence/paragraph that you are querying about. Otherwise, you may not get a response or I may ask you to resubmit your e-mail according to these instructions.
5) By the way, If you want to know why you were assigned some of the homework material for test 5, please consult the syllabus. Reminder: this is a really important class. (When democracy fails because of racism, ethnocentrism, etc., then there is chaos and thousands of innocent people, including children, are murdered--look at the horrendous tragedies in Ukraine, Yemen, etc., going on NOW, as you are reading these words.)
People, Folks, Guys,
Please go through the links on the left super-carefully (I will not answer questions I have already answered on this page). The Syllabus Disclaimer Assignment is now available on Blackboard (UBLearns), it is worth 10 points. (This is separate from BONUS points for each test.)
Study these slide images by clicking on them.
|Guys: If anybody knows the answer to the following question posed by the Dilbert Cartoonist, Scott Adams, let me know: "If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?"|
