Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying the second presentation week! Thank you again to all the presenters and thank you to everyone for providing excellent peer review feedback. I’d like to take a minute to share with you the story of the first time I provide a presentation on a research study and received peer review feedback on it. I had spent several weeks working on a qualitative research study with rural high school students about their perceptions on schooling. I transcribed the interviews, I analyze the data and I presented my findings to my classmates and my professor in my doctoral program. After I did my presentation, my professor said (and my professor is Lois Weis) “Well Andrea that was very interesting, but it certainly wasn’t qualitative research.” My peers then followed up with many very critical questions about my work and I realize I had a lot to learn. It is very important to go through the peer reviewed process when you’re learning how to translate what you have learned about qualitative and quantitative research in reading and in discussion, into a real world project. I promise you it never goes as smoothly as you might imagine, and I certainly did not expect for anyone to present a perfect research project here in 689. I hope you can see the value of doing our presentations and receiving peer review feedback. I know it can be difficult to hear about some of the challenges or difficulties with your work, and I really appreciate you being open-minded to the process. Every researcher that does a valid research project goes through an approval process which involves some level of critique. Even researchers such as a Lois Weis still have to have their work approved by funding agencies, institutional review boards and other interested partners in the research. And that process always, without question, involves some level of critique. So what we are doing in our class these last few weeks is very similar to the real life process of getting a research project approved. I hope you are enjoying it and I hope you are find the process not to painful, and I hope we can all learn a lot form the work that we are sharing with each other. I will post a summary post on each discussion board after each presentation has ended this week, which means tomorrow. On Thursday I will make summary post. I posted them last week on Friday because the discussion ended on Thursday. Please be sure to take some time to read those posts. They’re very short, but they point out what are the most important critiques of the research projects that were presented. I want to make sure you get my take on what the most important parts of our peer reviewed discussions have been. For those of you who are presenters, I do post presentation scores the day after the presentation discussion board is closed. So, be sure to check the Blackboard grade book for your score and comments on your presentations. I have not yet scored the final Literature Review. I’ve been spending time scoring the presentations and I want to make sure I return all of the literature reviews back to you at about the same time. I would like to ask for your patience and I would like to score the final literature reviews next week during the Thanksgiving holiday. Next week, as you know, you don’t have any discussion boards or readings or assignments for this course. I hope you all enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday with your friends and family! During that time, I will have a few days where I can work on scoring your final reviews. I hope to have all those scores given back to you by the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Again, thank you for your patience. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week’s presentation discussions and I look forward to our continuing work in this course. Thanks everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Monday morning to you ___ listeners hope you all had a fantastic four day weekend like I did. Couldn't have asked for better weather better friends better people to hang out with. Had a really good time and like I said I hope you hope you did the same thing and got out enjoyed the a weekend of friends and family. Hate to keep harping on the George Thurman case but I think it has some pretty big implications as far as our society goes as far as good people in general go. Now I'm I'm not a law expert by any stretch I'm I'm not you know I don't know a lot about a lot of stuff I know a little about a lot of stuff. That's pretty much what it comes down to so what I have to say about it really you know as far as the ins and outs of the case really doesn't have a whole lot of weight to it. I'm just a guy with an opinion but one thing I do think I'm pretty good at and that is ___
I've just watched another tourist get ambushed. I think it's the same gull. It creeps up behind you then flies up over your shoulder grabs the food and down and away. It's really clever. If it's not the same one it's taught all its friends how to do it. Wish people wouldn't feed the wretched things. They deserve to eat no protected species but oh I don't like being ambushed by birds.
