Revision to Midterm Story

Hi everyone!

First fact error for the midterms… from us!  Note that the lawsuit is now filed on October 23, not March 6 (p.9 of your midterm story packet)!

Stiftskeller hours

Hi everyone,

Hope everything is going well for J202 so far! Over the next three weeks (Weeks 7-9), I’ll be opening up extra Stiftskeller hours in case any of you would like to see me for guidance or advice. The hours are as follows:

Tuesdays (17 Oct, 24 Oct, 31 Oct): 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Wednesdays (18 Oct, 25 Oct, 1 Nov): 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Fridays (20 Oct, 27 Oct, 3 Nov): 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Location: Der Stiftskeller (within Memorial Union, annex of Der Rathskeller)

You are encouraged to come talk to me about your IS stories, the course overall, or if you simply need a listening ear.

I’ll still be holding my regular office hours on Thursdays (10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.) at Vilas 5137 as well. If none of these slots work for you, please email me to set up an appointment.

All the best as you progress through the semester!

Welcome to J202!

Hello Young Scholars of J202! Welcome to the SJMC and to the start of our exciting 6-credit adventure together. This week you’ll only go to the second lab meeting of the week — this means that if your lab meets Monday/Wednesday, you should go to lab Wednesday afternoon, if your lab meets Tuesday/Thursday, you should go on Thursday, and if your lab meets Wednesday/Friday, you’ll go on Friday.

We’ll meet as a big group for lecture for the first time on Monday, Sept. 11, at 9:30 a.m. Here are things you need to do before then (or, ideally, before your first lab):

  1. Read the syllabus. It’s linked in the navigation bar at the top of the page.
  2. Check out the schedule for the semester, also above.
  3. On the schedule page, note the Readings tab at the bottom of the sheet as well. Complete the readings as soon as you can.
  4. Read and do all of the assignments for Week 1 on the Assignments page. (Guess where?)
  5. Read the Individual Story page above and all the subpages linked below it.
  6. Just ignore the Final Project pages for a while.
  7. Look at the Admin tab, too, so you know where to find lecture notes, extra credit info and other good stuff.
  8. Join our Facebook group.
  9. Ignore the posts below this one on the front page. We’ll keep them around a bit in case anyone from last semester is still using some of the information from spring semester.
  10. Take a deep breath. The fun is about to begin!
