Dear Students,

Office Hours:
TH–2:00 to 3:30
FRI–12:00-1:00 (and then lunch downtown)

Who can come for office hours between 2:00 and 3:30 Thursday for our final class meeting? Please let me know by return email that you will be coming in tomorrow.

Those of you who can join us for lunch on Friday, please meet Kaitlin and me downtown at the Community Restaurant on Main St at 1:00. I will be in the office on Friday between 12:00 and 1:00 for office meetings.

If you want a ride downtown for lunch, come to the office ok? I’ll head out just before 1:00.

Please confirm that you will be making it here on the blog (or on email). Some of you have already responded re: lunch on Friday on the previous post. Thanks!

I will be in on Monday for in-office meetings between 12:30 and 2:30. Again, please let me know you will come by on Monday.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow, Friday or Monday. Thanks!

I also want to remind you that Kaitlin is presenting her poster on TH in Jacobus Lounge in Brockway. The lounge is open there (first floor) from noon to 5 to display the posters. Do go and see Kaitlin who will be there to talk about her poster from about noon to 1:30 I believe. I’ll let her confirm the time in another blog post.

Her work focuses on TEACH WITH YOUR HEART. It’s very interesting to see what other COR classes have been doing. So please do go to thank Kaitlin for all she has done in our COR class this semester. KES


Dear Class, the weather and unexpected meetings have played some havoc with my plans that’s for sure. I am so sorry about that.

Rather than try to re-make individual appts. I am simply going to post office hour times and invite you to come by for our end of semester chats.

There is NO COR class tomorrow. Our office meetings take the place of class. Use the hour to your advantage.

Wednesday: 12:00-1:20 (I have a dept. meeting at 1:30)
Thursday: 2:00-3:30
Friday: To be announced depending on lunch takers*

I will post next week’s times later this week.

*Lunch–I had to reschedule a student teacher observation that I had planned to do today so Th is no longer possible.

Our student teaching colloquium is Wed. from 4-6 and I know given this weather and the long day tomorrow I will not want to drive home late tomorrow night. I teach until 6:50 on Thursday so dinner is not possible on those days.

Who could make a Friday lunch date? Let me know here in the comment space. Thanks! KES

I hope you will join Kaitlin and me for dinner on Main Street at the Community Restaurant — 5:00 on Monday…we’ll wait till 5:15 at least to order. Please do RSVP. So far I have only heard back from one student. I feel bad about that. Kaitlin feels worse. You don’t want to be responsible for either of us bursting into tears!! Love you, KES

Dear Class,

We will meet as usual on Wednesday for our last class in Sperry. Our theme will be informed by a favorite story of mine, Joyce Carol Oates’ “Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been?”

So do some thinking about where you’ve been and where you’re going.

Turtle papers are due in class this week. Please be sure you staple your paper and do number the pages of any paper you turn in for any course. Please, too, be sure you have a title for your paper. The title may have evolved from initial drafts.

I will also be asking you to sign up for a time to meet with me before the end of the semester (in lieu of a class on the 5th) as well as to let us know which of two options for a final celebration (lunch and dinner) is best for you. It will be important to know your exam schedule when you come to COR this week.

Kaitlin and I look forward to seeing you. Be in touch. KES

Hi there, Kaitlin and I would love to have some feedback on the SL experience with Dr. Reid. I just got in from NY late last night and thought there would be lots of posts on that class. So what did you think? Has anyone created an avatar? KES

Our COR class meets in G17 OLD MAIN, the mac lab on the ground floor of the building.

The downstairs hallway is right underneath my office.

I will see you there at 3:00.

Please be sure you have checked out the link to SL Kaitlin posted a few days ago.

Did anyone go to the Roberts’ lecture? KES

This is going to be a very important lecture for all of us tonight. Don’t miss hearing Paul Roberts–OM Auditorium at 7:30. Here is a bit more information about Roberts:

Paul Roberts, a journalist whose first book, The End of Oil: On the Edge of a Perilous New World, helped to bring attention to the possibility of peak oil, will be speaking in Brown Auditorium at 7:30 PM on November 8th as part of the Intellectual and Cultural Climate Committee lecture series “Earthly Matters.” His lecture will concentrate on the economic and political implications of a peak in oil production and the potential for alternatives to fill the gap left by declining oil supplies. Roberts’ talk presents a wonderful opportunity for the community to explore the issue of energy. This is an especially important topic given the conflict in the middle east, the prospect of global climate change and the upcoming presidential election.
