Analysis of Humanities... a project

Seriously who the heck makes up some of these assignments? 3 topics that relate to my profession randomly need to be picked from art, film, and a specific list of literary choices... like really! What am I suppose to do read all frigging 20 of them?

I am almost done with my Powerpoint and seriously hoping that the BS I fill it with is enough to meet the rubric. I am just filling in the points and trying to use the key words to make it sound real. Some topics suggest 4-7 slides... I can fit a compare and contrast into one... should I really do 4-7 ? That's 21 slides just for one section alone and there are 4 sections with subsections galore... who on earth wants to sort through and grade that?

Urgh!

2 and 3/4 Finished

Still waiting on revision for task 4 of my GKE1 Applications: in US and World History) class.

PASSED the GKT1 Analysis: of US and World History Class on the first attempt! Woot- Powerpoint accepted!

PASSED the Applications of Humanities final I had scheduled for next week. I pushed it up a week and took it today instead. Was a bit nerve wracking and seriously I think I just guessed at most of the questions... however I improved my score from a 64% cut score to a 71% cut score. (Cut scores are not percentages based on a 100% grade btw- it's some totally other weird subjective formula... in this class for instance a passing cut score was 55%)

On the agenda

Well I have three tasks of 4 completed and passed and 1 awaiting revision review. So hopefully that comes back ok and then I'll be done with my first class.

I submitted by PowerPoint for my second class which is the only thing due. Last I checked I was at #15 in the que. It'll probably be reviewed by tomorrow. I'm hoping I don't have to do too many revisions, let's hope for NONE, and that class will be done.

I scheduled the exams for two classes for next week. I have Care of the Older Adult on Thursday, and Humanities on Saturday. IF I pass those first time out I could be finished with 4 classes in 20 days!

I'll start my essay part for Humanities, its a compare and contrast essay, on Sunday after I take the test and see if I can get that written and submitted by Wednesday and at least I'll have meet my goal and attempted all 5 classes that I want to get done prior to October 1st. I plan October for Biochm, but from what I read on the support site it may not take that long since it's just 4 tasks based on things I have already learned in previous course work. Then it'll be November for Stats. I haven't even hoped that class and I am scared to do it too!
