For the first week of class, students were asked to introduce themselves and to work through developing a topic for the session-long course project. Instructor comments on the latter were offered in the hopes of prompting deeper consideration and more engaged, authentic work. Students were further asked to check in to ascertain early progress in the session.
The course roster showed 25 students enrolled; 23 participated in online discussion during the week. An online office hour was held on Monday, 29 October 2018; one student attended.
Students are reminded that another office hour is scheduled for tonight, Monday, 5 November 2018, at 6pm Central Standard Time. Students are also reminded that the following assignments are due before the end of day (Mountain Standard Time) on 11 November 2018:

- Course Project: Research Proposal and Outline (due as a Word document in APA format)
