SPED5023 Planning Instruction for Children with Exceptionalities

News as of Tuesday, June 28, 2011.

Grading continues and I am having some hope of being finished at the end of the day today. I see a lot of excellence in the units and other materials that you have made during this summer session.

Although the course is rooted in Blackboard, every attempt has been made to "mirror" those data files on the T drive at  ftp://tdata.atu.edu .  As long as Blackboard stays up and is stable, the T drive will not be necessary, but if it should crash, it would become our backup source of information.

The dates below now reflect the planning for Summer I 2011. Because of the brevity of a three-week course and also because of the head start I am giving you on it in the weeks before school starts, for discussion boards, I am not giving opening dates, but only closing (due) dates. I am not planning to extend due dates this semester. When we start extending due dates during a course this short, we are not really doing ourselves any favors. It all has to get done by midnight June 24.
