Alright. This week is not going the way I planned. Being sick sucks, and not being with you guys for a third day in a row sucks worse.
But there is a very silver lining. Those of you who are contributing ideas here and on your own blogs are officially learning independently. You're exactly the kind of self-starter that universities and employers look for.
So my question today is (for those of you crushing it): How does it feel to seize the opportunity?
And my question today is (for those of you not doing anything I can see online and not emailing me for help): How does it feel to waste the opportunity?
2. Today is reflection in the form of torturing a friend. Write a test with at least two questions per chapter. Post the questions (BUT NOT THE ANSWERS) on your blog (TITLE: GATSBY TEST CHAPTERS 1-4). Get three friends to take the test by commenting to your post with their answers. Grade them and report their grades with the correct answers in a second post (TITLE: GATSBY TEST GRADES).
Q: Dr. Preston, what if I can't get three friends to take my test?
A: Fine-tune your powers of persuasion and try harder. This is all-or-nothing.
