Learning Things The Hard Way

Our due date for the BIG Idea is coming up!  Your projects are due to be submitted on or before October 13, 2016.  I know the website says otherwise, but, I know how you love to wait until the last minute.  For that reason and the fact that we’ll just be getting home from National Convention about the time the actual due date occurs, I’ve made our due date a bit earlier.  One of the critiques that students gave me for this class last year was to spread out the due dates for things…….so, there you go!

When I log into the BIG Idea site I can see that several of you have created one or more student accounts.  When I access the projects tab I can see that three projects have been started.  You have Seven more Blue days, counting today and the 13th, to get your work for the BIG Idea perfected and submitted.


Later this week we’ll be logging into AET and getting some work done on records, SAE Grants, proficiency apps, etc.  Feel free to get a head start on those things.

Leadership CDES – HELP!  It’s time to really get going here.  I’m starting to lose sleep over our lack of productivity in this area.  The registration date for Jackrabbit Invite is October 12th!  We are required to submit any written material with our registration.  This means our Ag Issues Portfolio, Ag Comm Media Plan, Market Plan, and Job Interview have to be ready enough to go with our registration.  WOW – have we got some work to do!  If you aren’t sure what to do – please ask!  Several of us have A LOT OF WRITING to do!

Your post is due Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 8:15 a.m.
