Updates on schedule, deadlines, office hours and more

What a week we’ve had! Thank you all for your patience and flexibility as we’ve figured things out. Jesse and I have been busy over the last couple of days rearranging the schedule to make up for the lab we lost this week.

If you look at the schedule posted here you might notice that some assignments and activities have been moved around. We’ve done the best we could to arrange it in a way that covers essential material while also giving you enough time to complete everything the best you can. We may decide we need to move something again, but we’ll give you a warning if we need to adjust your deadline.
Those of you in Labs 305 and 306 (which meet Tuesday/Thursday afternoon), remember you should be in class from 1-2:50 p.m. today, and Lab 307 (which meets Wednesday/Friday) will be on from 9-11:50 a.m. tomorrow. If you’ve already had lab once this week, you’re good until next week.
Here’s what you need to know about deadlines:
  1. Your IS pitch, which was supposed to be due Monday at the start of lecture, is now due at the start of your Lab 2 in Week 3.
  2. The grammar and style quizzes still need to be done by the start of lecture Monday.
  3. We will have our quiz as planned on Monday during lecture — you should do the week 3 readings, check the news, get to know your AP Stylebook and read over your notes from lecture to prepare.
  4. The practice points assignment you got/will get in lab this week is due at the start of Lab 1 in Week 3.
  5. Your portfolio URL should already be submitted, and your resume needs to be posted by Wednesday at midnight.

Because of the university reopening at noon, I will have to adjust my regular Thursday office hours — I’ll be available in the lobby on the 5th floor of Vilas from noon-12:30 p.m., and then again from 1-1:30 p.m. My special Friday office hours are still on as scheduled (there’s one slot left: go.wisc.edu/j202spring2019officehourswithstacy).

We’ll see you all in 2195 Monday morning — until then, let’s cross our fingers that promised thaw is on its way…
