I am taking 16 credit hours again this fall and still working part-time at Kohls. I have the following classes: Microeconomics, Concepts of Calculus, Astronomy, American History II and Communicating in the Work Place. Hopefully I do well in these classes. My American History II Professor has already giving us access to the instructions for our 5 home works with their due dates, so we can actually complete them all now. He has what he calls Text Book Bonus Assignments, they are extra credit that you do not have to do but the instructs to them are only released 1 week before they are due. There are 5 of the Bonus Assignments and they totally are worth half of the all Homework totals. The Communicating in the Work Place has 4 presentations you have to do. The first presentation is by yourself, introducing yourself to the class with 3 slides. The next 2 presentations are group projects and you will be assigned to different groups for each presentation project. The fourth is you doing a video presentation that you will have to upload to Vimeo. Concepts of Calculus is lecturing with homework you don’t turn in, but if you don’t do it you might not make as good a grade on the quizzes as you would have. He does not use a physical book, saves you money there, he does have a pdf of the book he is teaching out of, that he has sent to everyone. He has a rule of no electronics and no calculator, he said his math class is designed so that you should not need them. He does not have any online component to the class. Astronomy their is an online component and a lab workbook that you will use, there is no other book besides a lab book for this class. Microeconomics is lecturing and responding in class, with a few exams, there is an online component where you will do your homework.
I think I am going to be busy this Fall.
