"New and Improved" HES PIA
#1
Hi All,
 
PIA Mayflower-Emerson still doesn't begin until one minute after midnight tonight, but I've gathered quite a bit of info regarding the "New and Improved" $1000 course and thought I'd share...
 
The new course appears much more rigorous - the Discussion grade is now subdivided into two parts - 20% participation and 20% content.
 
Discussion Requirements -
One 250-400+ word paragraph per week in response to the Weekly Prompt (like a mini-annotation essay).
One 100-150+ word response to another post using new evidence, claims, etc. (like a micro-mini annotation essay).
(They provide a handout with in-depth samples.)
 
Here's the breakdown -
Assignments are weighted by group:
Yellowdig Participation Score
20%
Yellowdig Content Score
20%
Final Essay
30%
Yellowdig #2 (Non-credit)
10%
Weekly Quizzes
20%
Completion-based Grades

Total
110%

It's interesting to note that the school week now officially begins and ends on Friday's at 7:59 PM as opposed to the 2018 Wed. - Wed. schedule. Personally, I preferred the Wed. due dates as the weekend occurred toward the end of the school week (when I, like most working adults, have more free time).
