Welcome to class! I'm excited about this class and this semester. I think we're going to do lots of interesting things, and I look forward to working with each of you.
The main thing you need to do this week is to get your textbook and get ready to get to work.
I would also like you to reply to this post with a few details about yourself. This will give a chance to practice using the blog before we try out any graded discussions on it. It will also give us a chance to get comfortable with one another and to get to know each other a little.
If you have any trouble getting started in the class or you have any questions, email me.
