  • Before we get into class business, we will have a brief visit from counselors at the Wellness Exchange.
  • I also wrote up my account for Campus Safety and wanted to share it since it mentions this class. (Only members of this class currently have access. The document does not mention any student names.)
  • You are welcome to comment and/or write up your own account to send to Captain West @ Campus Safety.

Agenda: Hour 2

  • We will keep it chill today. I will make a breakout room so you can drop it to ask questions 1-on-1.

Assignment: 300 more words

  • Take it easy, but keep building that paper.
  • Keep drafting your Intro/Background and Problem/Significance. Pay particular attention to naming and scoping the Diversity/DEI/human element of these sections.
  • Try to add a sentence or two to all the other sections, so as to outline your project plans.
  • Aim to have about 900 original words (total) in your doc by Tuesday.
  • I will start leaving substance-oriented comments in docs that are further along, and word count-oriented comments in docs that need it!
