Hope you had some great holidays. The highlight of mine was that my 1.5-yr grandson decided to call me "PopPop."

This week:

* read the chapters on information searching and documentation, and take the quizzes.

* your oral report will be due Dec. 9. Bear in mind that your oral report is a presentation of your written report, which makes it easy. Use the format in the examples!

* preliminary draft of your final written report due Dec. 9 also.

I'm here if you need help, have questions. -- David

Thanksgiving week! I tried to keep this week clear for us, but came up a little short

By next Sunday:

* read about reports and take the quiz

* think about what you'd like to write your final report on and fill out the online form. This is for a grade so it needs to be as well thought out and as detailed as you can get it.

And of course I'll be around everyday except TG day to help you brainstorm.

Happy turkeys! -- David

Hello, all! We're gettin' there! This is an easy week. If you so desire, send me a revision of whichever project you got the lowest grade on. By Nov. 18.

Unfortunately, I've been slammed by an ACC project that has eaten up my time and put me behind on everything. I hope to have your definition and causal papers back to you tomorrow afternoon.

And this might be a good time to jump to the next week's projects. Go for it!

Let me know if you have any questions. -- David

Hello, scientists and technologists. I've got mass quantities of resumes and letters to review. Will take most of the week.

Don't forget: I will accept only *one* revision for the semester. If you don't like your grade on one of these, hold off until Dec. 8 to see what your other grades are.

This week: read and take the quizzes on description, graphics, process, and lists. Use the format you learn in the description and process you write due Oct. 21.

Do you read these beginning-of-week things, or am I just talking to myself?
