March 8: Midterm reminders & class info post-Spring Break

March 7, 2012

Today’s agenda: Midterm time. You will have the entire class period for the exam, which will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m.

A few reminders:

  • The midterm is open note, open book
  • No electronic notes/materials
  • The midterm covers the book chapters and my class presentations (mostly the book stuff…)
  • The exam includes multiple choice, true/false, and short answer questions

After spring break: We return with an assignment to ease you back into school work. Blog post 4 is due by the start of class on Tuesday (March 20) and we’re covering Chapter 5 — Sound recording & popular music.

Blog post 4: The soundtrack of your life

  • Create a list of 8-10 songs that reflect your life in some way. It can be songs that have a particular meaning to you because they were playing when a significant event occurred or because they represent your thoughts/feelings in a significant way. (You can have a mix of these two types.)
  • For each song, list the song title and artist
  • Explain in 2-4 sentences why each song has a place in the soundtrack to your life
  • Remember that this list is in the public domain, so it’s up to you to decide how personal you want to be in your descriptions/details

Presentation reminder: Check to see if you are scheduled to present during the week we return from spring break. *You are still required to submit your presentation idea one week in advance*
