There is no forum for Week 10 because there are no reading assignments and no online discussion.  Week 10 is devoted to writing your final papers - Good luck!

Schmooze Time meets this week on Tuesday November 16th @4:30. I look forward to chatting with you!  Unfortunately, it will be our last opportunity, formally speaking anyway.

The due date for your final paper is Saturday, November 20th. If you find yourself unable to complete the paper by that deadline for whatever reason, I will grant an incomplete, but you need to let me know ASAP, because there are forms to fill out - so it is and so it shall always be. Amen.
