Today was the last official day of class. Though I am meeting with them Monday and Weds. of next week, the class is officially over, except for the collecting of final papers, which I will do on Weds. Technically, the finals day is Monday, but they will not be ready since I did not get their drafts till today, and several didn't give me drafts today since they still refuse to go to UCI to do research, saying it is unfair that they have to leave campus in order to do their work.
Since it is impossible with most topics to rely totally on IVC's library and what is available online, there is nothing I can do about this. I told them the first day of class that they should count on having to do it, and on spending many many hours doing research. They never bothered to do it, so most of them are just barely scraping by, and a couple not even that.
I will be happy to leave this class behind me forever and never never teach this topic again.
