We all want Boeing to come to Missouri but it is important that we carefully deliberate the details of the bill and not respond on emotion or impulse. People hear the word "jobs" and immediately attach orthemselves to a "jobs bill" but in many cases they never define their terms let alone read the bill and crunch the numbers. Do we still approve a "jobs bill" even if it shifts a tremendous tax burden on to the rest of the state causing small business and families to somehow make up for it? ........

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying Week #11. I have certainly enjoyed your presentations on your Mini Case Study of an International Adult Education Provider. Thank you for choosing such interesting providers, I think we have all been learning a lot from these presentations. Of course the follow up discussions is currently under way and it will go until 10pm tonight. Next week, we do not have a discussion, so after our discussion ends tonight we will not be discussing together until Week #13. Next week we are off of the discussion board in observance of Veteran’s days. Even though we don’t have a discussion next week, we of course still have course reading to do that are due this Sunday, and you have readings due the following Sunday, as well. You also have a personal journal due this week and next week. While you are off from the discussion board next week, I highly recommend that you begin or continue to work on your next two paper assignments. You do have your Micro Teaching Lesson Plan due, as well as an article critique due, before the end of the semester. The guidelines for the micro teaching lesson plan are available in the assignment guidelines folder and I will have the guidelines for the article critique posted by this Friday. As always please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns about the assignments. Even though we will not have a formal discussion next week the “Ask the Instructor Discussion Board” will be open and I will have my normal office hours. As a reminder, the micro teaching lesson plan is due November 23rd, and your article critique is due CEP week on Monday, December 9th. I’ve really enjoyed all the hard work that you are doing in this course- please keep it up! As a reminder, registration opens tomorrow for the spring semester. Please make sure you contact your adviser to touch base and to get your pin number to register for the spring. I will hopefully work with you all again sometime in the future, and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the semester and have a great spring semester as well. With that I am going to sign off and say have a wonderful weekend and take care!

I hope you are enjoying week #10! It’s been a really interesting discussion about the different chapters that you choose to read in the Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education. I think those chapter are all very important, and you all will have a chance to get more in-depth in those topics in ADE 605 and ADE 655. In this course we just introduce the ideas and you study them further in future courses in the program. So I’m sure you’ll enjoy those courses later on in your time period in the ADE program. This week, as a reminder, you have your international mini case study of and adult education provider due. It’s due Saturday by 11:55pm and you will be presenting your case study as part of our discussion next week. Much like you did for the presentation of your site visit reports, you will have the option of doing an ipadio phonecast, Youtube video or typing out your transcript of your report as a First Post. So, be prepared to turn in your mini case study of an international provider and be prepared to do a brief presentation, which will be your First Post for next week’s discussion. I’m really looking forward to seeing what providers you chose and to learning more about them. As always, I have office from 8am-9am on Tuesday and 8am -12pm on Wednesday. Please feel free to come in and visit or call. I always love to connect with students, so please feel free to contact me at any time and remember the “Asks the Instructor” discussion board is always open. Thank for all your hard work! Have a great weekend.
