The "old" curriculum

There are many problems with teaching two curricula at the same time.  One of them is how to use the Inthinking site!

In order to simplify the use of the site and to make sure that as material is added for the new curriculum that there is no confusion as to what is what, all material for the "old" curriculum is in now relocated to this section of the site.

Please remember that the final exams for this curriculum are in November 2018.  The first exams for the new curriculum are in May 2019.

Hi John,

Question on marking. I am marking mock exams and there are a few students who wrote me a note saying they blanked and could not answer a question. But then to show me they know something, wrote an entirely different essay to a prompt not on the exam. Does this earn a zero? Or do I still read for content and critical thinking even though it is not related to the question? At first I just gave zeros, but now I am questioning myself . . . Thank you, Sara

Dear Sara - yes, this earns a zero.
