My wife did me the favor of proofreading my syllabus last night, and noticed the really ironic error in this section:
Dr. Hanley will provide necessary html formatting, but will not correct grammar or typos—7our post will be under your name, so make yourself look good by writing well.
How embarrassing would that have been if she hadn’t caught that?
[If you’re wondering about why I’m providing html formatting, it’s because I’m experimenting with having a blog for my American Government class, in which each student has to write one post during the term and all are required to participate in discussion. The first post won’t go up for a couple of weeks, but if you have any interest in seeing what they write, the blog is at https://acpsci101.wordpress.com]
[P.S., I have a very long post coming soon about the tensions between the liberal arts ideal and the increasing emphasis on pre-professional education. Stay tuned.]
