My band's last show of 2012! Tomorrow (Thursday) at Vaudville Mews in downtown Des Moines. We play at 6 PM sharp so get there early. All proceeds go to a drake scholarship fund, so we hope to see lots of students & faculty there to support the cause!

The band I'm in (One Hundred Mondays) with two other Drake faculty (Mike Couvillon & Tom Buckmiller) is playing at Vaudville Mews this Thursday at 6:00. After us is another band featuring drake faculty (Charlie Nelson & Tim Kneuper) with one more band after that. Good way to start a Thursday night out! $5 at the door (money goes to a drake scholarship fund). All Ages.

You can find One Hundred Mondays music by searching Facebook, iTunes, amazon, or Google. Hope to see you there!

If you live around Des Moines, I hope to see you there! Feel free to contact me with questions.

This Wednesday (aug 8) my band, One Hundred Mondays (with Mike Couvillon & Tom Buckmiller), will be playing at Bombay Bicycle Club (86th & Hickman) at 8 PM. $5 cover, but that includes two other great bands. You should be there!

As you start to consider your self assessment, you'll want to think carefully about comments I & others have left. If a comment on one of your posts indicates you may need to continue thinking about a topic or that you've left something out, I would not expect you to argue for having met that standard, unless you can defend how you've addresses the comment or why the comment was not necessary.

Importantly, self assessment should not be "when I'm doubt, try for getting the standard checked off". Instead, self assessment should be "when in doubt, you probably do not yet fully understand the standard yet". One problem with this assessment system is that it easily becomes about a series of hail mary's. That is, students claim they've met the standard even though they really know they likely have not.

I don't write this to cause you fear, but to express some thoughts about how I hope you'll approach today's task. This first week will include a significant learning curve, & I expect each of you to meet some standards, & not meet some despite thinking you have.

As always, feel free to contact me
With any questions.
