Task #3 – (10 minutes)

I would like to have the class elect five student leaders. The roll of these leaders is to give their input and honest feedback about the content, structure, work, and instructional practices I utilize. These leaders will help shape how the class operates. These individuals must volunteer themselves for the position, know how e-mail works, and check their e-mail on a regular weekly basis. Additionally, these leaders will not have to physically meet with me because we will take care of our work online through Google chatroom use and e-mail. If you are interested in the position please print your name on the white board in the appropriate box. If more than five people volunteer then will have a anonymous student vote determine who the leaders are.

Task #4 – (50 minutes)
