Make-up Class and Grades Update


After discussing with Pn. Faridah, I learned that all classes must be finished by 3 July. That means that we will have to have a make-up class for the first week that we missed (I did not know any of this). Make-up classes can be held during the week or Saturdays, depending on everyone's availability. Also, she informed me that grades are due in by the 29th of July. Since we don't have a final exam, your assignments can be turned in at any time before that, as long as I have time to grade them and submit the grades.

I am proposing that the final 2 assignments be submitted by the 15th of July (to give me 2 weeks to complete the grading). I hope this is acceptable to everyone. We will then have to figure out how I am going to collect the assignments... We can discuss next week at class, insha-Allah....

If anybody has any comments/ideas, please post them below.

Perceptions and Multiple Realities in Qualitative Research...

Perceptions are very important. Perceptions are more powerful than what actually happens, because perceptions become that person's reality.
