I have secured room 203 for us for Monday March 10th. Many of you have already emailed me for conferences. I am booked already until 6:15, but am free 6:15 forward.
Please keep in mind I am also available in North Bergen at my office after 3:00 next week on any day but Monday (since I will be at NJCU). Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment if you have not already done so and would like to.
Many of you did not hand in the homework that was due tonight (Douglass Essay). If you still have not printed it out, please do so and email it to me ASAP.
Click on the CLASS HANDOUTS page. It is called “Douglass.”
Please report directly to the computer lab for today’s exam. Thanks!
If you have not yet received your Mock 1 essay back, you will this weekend as I am emailing more today.
I will be holding conferences for your Mock 2 essay during spring break (March 10). We will conference the Mock 2 test that you are scheduled to take this Monday, March 3rd. Please email me to make an appointment for March 10th. Conferences will begin at 4:30 in the computer lab in the library.
* Should there be snow on Monday and the university close, WE WILL STILL TAKE THE MOCK 2 EXAM SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY. I will post the exam online, on this blog. You will have two hours to take this exam. Spellcheck and grammar check must be taken off if you are typing. Please email me your essay so I can grade it prior to our conference. If you handwrite it, please bring it with you to our conference on Monday, March 10th.
I will post to this blog on Monday if the University is closed; it will also be posted on the university website. If that is the case, I will post the exam and instructions on how to take off spell and grammar check on the computer. Remember, the practice/mock exam is to prepare you for the midterm, so using extra time or resources will not benefit you for the midterm and final exam. I am also around this week after 4:00 to meet with you should class get cancelled. Thank you.

I know our schedule has been crazy with MLK day, snow days, and the President’s Day this week, so I am holding class during spring break. If you have arrangements to be away and can’t make it, I will meet with you one-on-one. Please see me or email me at email@example.com or see me privately during class Monday.
I would also like to schedule a session with you individually to review your last test. If you live or work closer to North Bergen, we can meet in my office at High Tech High School, 2000 85th Street, Tues- Fri between 3 and 5. If you live closer to Jersey City, we can meet at NJCU after 4:45 pm. We can schedule individualized appointments during class on Monday when we meet. I have also secured a classroom, Professional Studies Building 203, which has a smart board and regular white board for instruction. Then, when we take tests, we can move to the computer lab in the library to use the computers.
I just want to reassure you that I am as committed to you are in passing this exam, and I will do whatever possible to meet your needs throughout the course of the semester. Don’t hesitate to email me as I check my email constantly.
See you Monday!
