As of today 8 people shared their thoughts about how things are going in our WEEK 2 CHECK-IN on Google Classroom. And, here is what I found: (1) 3 people said the pace is good or too slow, 6 said it is too fast, and 5 did not respond yet and (2) I did not have anyone attend the live chat at noon on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. As a result, we will make 2 adjustments for this week. FIRST, we will slow down our pace a bit. SECOND, I will set up a place in Google Classroom called "WEEK 3 Project Helpline" so each of you can discuss your project with me.
