Please sign in HERE. Your Final Reflection is included.
Please write your reflection in another program (i.e. MS Word or Google Drive) then cut and paste across. Writing directly in this form may result in loss of your work.

Revised work may be submitted in hard copy to my box in E103 until 3pm on Tuesday 06/14. I will now, due to my waylaid circumstances, also accept revisions and questions via email at until 3pm on Tuesday 06/14. Do NOT use attachments for revisions. Cut and paste the text into the email. You should receive a "got it" email from me within a few hours. If not text me at 917.359.5222. If you do not receive a response to the text within an hour or so, feel free to text as much as you want. I will not blame you.

All work is due by 3pm on Tuesday 06/14.

I will be in my office at E103S from 10:00 to 3:00 on 6/13 and 6/14. You may schedule an appointment or just drop by. Scheduled appointments will be seen first.

Blackboard has been wiggy. Do not rely on it. Apologies, but there is nothing I can do about that. I will post final grades there as soon as possible, but they sometimes do not go through.

6/1 Check Here for Updates

Hi folks, Apologies, but I am ill again today. Here is the work-around:

  • Drafts already submitted will receive comments via Laguardia email today. 
  • If you have a draft to submit (including rewrites), you may do so via gmail at Please indicate very clearly the course number. Comments will be as a reply to that email. 
  • All grades will be in Blackboard (it is illegal for me to email grades.)
  • You can either email me at or text me at 917.359.5222 with questions or concerns (no voicemail, please). 
Thank you for your patience.

  2. Check back to the comments and reply to at least 3 classmates' drafts with both supportive and constructive (things to do) comments. What are they doing well? What do they need to work on now. Please restrict your comments to 1 positive and 1 constructive (you might want to fix it) comment per draft.
