  1. Please review the list of materials above and complete anything that is missing.
  2. Thoughts on Course: Please consider the structure and content in the course and provide me with any feedback on the course. Because of COVID, the software and format of the course changed significantly. Offer up general thoughts on the content and approach of the course.
  3. Thoughts on readings: This falls into three categories: the WebGIS book, the Making Maps book, and the additional readings. Offer up some thoughts on the readings. Which were the most interesting? Which were the least interesting? Should I  lecture more, or was the mixed “me talk” and “you talk” approach preferable?
  4. Course grade: Please suggest the letter grade you think you deserve for this course. Be realistic. Consider the amount of effort you put into the course, how much you learned, your attendance, your ability to get exercises completed on time, and the quality of your work. Do consider yourself in relation to other students in the class. Use these criteria to justify the grade you think you deserve. I do reserve the right to adjust this grade (up, down, or sideways).
