April 6: individual student conferences

Sign up for your preferred time here. Times are for Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Note that this isn’t an evaluation, quiz, or test! The goal is one-on-one discussion to see how your fieldwork assignment (and the course itself) is going and give us a chance to discuss anything you might want to talk about.

What to do for Wed. April 13: 

No reading assignment this week. The entire class will be short presentations where you introduce the rest of us to your organization.

What’s next:

  • Wednesday April 20 is CUNY spring break: we do not meet
  • Monday April 25: interview assignment due
  • Wednesday April 27 we return to weekly meetings for the last 3 weeks of the semester
