Welcome to the blog! This blog is designed for you guys to post any of your class-related thoughts, comments, or questions. It is also where you will submit your writing assignments. The first one is due October 2 by 11:59 pm. The goal of the first post is really to make sure that you have access to the blog and know how to work with it and how to post to it. With that in mind, grading will be lenient, but I would like you to answer the following two questions in your posts: 1) What is one thing so far this semester that you've learned that you found interesting? 2) What do you hope to learn from or get out of this class or what are your expectations of this class and/or of me?
As for me, so far, I've enjoyed the unit on behavioral genetics. Being a biology major as well in my undergrad, I'm very intrigued by biology and genetics; also, being a MN native and UMN student, the twin studies are a point of state and school pride. Before the end of class, I hope to learn everyone's names; I'm terribly slow at learning names, but in three months, I think I can do it! Wish me luck!
