This Monday, April 25th, is the last meeting of this too-short class!  Be sure to arrive on-time at 6:00 sharp (don’t leave your teammates hangin’).

Most of the class time will be devoted to topic team presentations, plus some time to complete evaluations for yourself, your book group-mates, your topic team-mates, and the class overall (Thinking in Systems readers will especially appreciate the importance of such feedback in keeping the system healthy).

By the time class starts, you should have posted at least five items to your topic page (since class started).  You are also expected to have finished your book reading and post your second/final book homework before the start of class.  I am expected to get the grades finished a couple of days after the class ends, so there isn’t much time to get these in late – be sure to let me know if I should be expecting any late work from you (and yes, there are points off for late submissions).

One remaining extra credit opportunity for this class – come do a repeat of your topic presentation (all, part or something else – individually or as a team) in my Environmental Justice and Sustainable Communities panel during the Social Justice Conference at Cabrillo on Saturday April 30th  8:30am to 3:30pm.  You will need to confirm your intention to do this – send me an email with your plan. Such presentations are also great additions to your resume/transfer application! The Social Justice Conference is an excellent (free) annual event; please consider attending even if you don’t want to present.

Thanks for all your efforts, and see you soon!
