After a helpful discussion with today’s E block class, I have decided that everyone brings the completed journal to the exam.  You have between now and then to finish the project.  It makes sense for you to have this time, especially given my earlier statements about the importance of pacing this journal-work over time.  Be sure to bring your journal to the exam, since you will hand it in after you’re done with that part of the exam.

From our discussion, one unresolved issue remains.  Should the journal score go in the grade book as another assignment (Minor Grade, factor of two) in the semester, or should it be included in the exam grade (half the Samurai’s Garden portion of the exam)?  The question arises primarily because you no longer can see grade book entries after this coming Tuesday.

I need time to decide how best to resolve this issue.  In the meantime, I encourage you to proceed with the journal, knowing its new deadline and its benefits as a review tool.
