Some have expressed a preference for general class discussion over group discussion, which we've inadvertently been doing anyway. I'm happy to defer to the will of the majority on this, on a class-by-class basis. Let's just play it by ear. On those occasions when we don't have separate group discussions, please continue to appoint group authors who'll post their take on the class discussion. And everyone else, please reply to those posts with comments, FQs, DQs, & links.
Exam #1, to be drawn from our daily quiz questions, is Feb.26. Let's begin collaborating on a study guide (we can't finish it 'til near the end of the month but we can start it now): each group, plan to select ten of those quiz questions (along with relevant page references), then copy-&-paste them into an author post labelled "Exam 1 Questions, Grp.__". Once all three groups have done that (supplemented by my contribution if necessary), we'll copy-&-paste them all into a post labelled "Exam 1 Study Guide".
It's time to make definite plans for the midterm group report presentations, which begin on Feb.26 (which is also the date for Exam #1). Split into reporting groups of 3, 4, or 5. Each group member is to focus on a different aspect of the topic, and to post a summary of his/her contribution before
the reporting date.
