LEARNING RECORDS

Message 137 of Learning Records:

The semester has finally come to an end. I just wanted to thank you for an amazing eye opening semester. To be honest with you I was quite confused and lost with our Soc 395, Love 1A class, but it didn't take long for to me to catch on to what you're teaching us. You are very much appreciated by your students. I'm glad to see you're doing well and I look forward to speaking with you soon. Can you please also post #9055 and 9056 to my records. I hope I have fullfilled my requirement of the class with my postings, boxes, cards and participation with the Celebrating Naked Space Performance Art Exhibit. Thanks again and I wish the best with your health and the holidays.

Thank you, Heather. There's a very important message in there. Teaching without tests and authoritative domination is confusing to those who have never experienced it. But it feels good. It adds to your confidence with what you're learning. And it measures your actual efforts instead of objectivized and impersonal barriers on inflexible tests controlled by another's perception of what you SHOULD learn. Your message will go on to help other newcomers fluff out their feathers and enjoy the new-found freedom to learn.

So back in October when we made cards for prop 65, the prop that requires labeling for materials containing synthetic chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, I made several cards and took them to my aunt's preschool and passed them out to the parents before halloween. Many of the parents asked questions about the subject and thanked me. Last week my aunt brought me home a card that many of the parents signed for me as return for the information I shared with them. It just goes to show that people just need to be informed of important issues and it's up to us to take action...and people really do care.

Hether, I'm so proud of you. That is a wonderful example of how we create community, celebrate our schools, and make ours a more loveable world.

Thank you Shirley for bringing this to my attention. I'm just curious to know on what basis do they determine the amount Dr. Lyons would receive for his raise. It's so frustrating to see how money is being spent at this school and on who when I can't afford my school fees now, not to mention the increase for next semester.

I totally agree with what you say. I was not aware of the presidents in13%increase which seems ridiculous to me. If they keep increasing the fees, then it would be one more barrier for minorities or anyone to want to attend a university after high school. Everyone has too many problems to worry about already anyways. Well im glad that you brought it up, because that way, the ones who do read what you wrote will know at least some part of what is going on.

There was a e-mail sent to all students in the CS system about the raise in student fees. They also talked about Dr. Lyons raise for 13%. My question to Dr, Curran or anyone who knows the answer. If they keep raising the student fees, the sudents won't beable to afford an education. Why give him a raise, because there will be no students here to teach if they keep raising the fees.

Why did the teachers only get 3% and Dr. Lyons received 13%?

Well, maybe it's good to document it all here. History may need this to learn that we raised our voices in protest. You want me to tell you why teaching doesn't count, Shirley??? But I'm proud to see you learning to use the resources you each bring. Keep informing each other. Keep aware. Vote.

Message 8518 :

I definitely agree with both Jenny and Sabrina on the issue of legalizing marijuana. Not only could I agree with the idea that a person under the influence of marijuana is much more harmless than a person under the influence of alcohol, but I also look at things like the overcrowding of our prisons.

By legalizing marijuana the people who are imprisoned for these minor offences wouldn't be overcrowding our prisons. I also believe in alternative punishment other than imprisonment for these types of offences.

Good point, Heather. Glad to see your participation on transform_dom.

Message 8516:

The retirement celebration for Betty went great. It looked like everyone had a good time decorating the sculptures and eating cake. I brought a friend along with me and she picked the "tests suck" sculpture as her first pick conversation piece.

This was my first semester at CSUDH so I didn't get the opportunity to get to know both Jeanne and Pat to well, but I do want to thank you for opening my eyes to a whole other side of sociology.

Reply:

Heather, you've coped pretty well for a first semester here. I'm glad you brought a friend, and glad you had this new experience. I figured most of you would pick "tests suck" when given a choice, but, you know, they really do, don't they? Maybe you'll visit with us next semester.
