Online Confusion

Like you may already know I am taking online classes through Johnson and Wales University because I am currently at home on medical leave.When I was at school I tried to make sure to take all of the classes that were only offered on campus, like my baking labs.

Unluck of the Draw
When I went online to sign up for the classes I amtaking currently there was a very short list of courses that were available to me.Either I had taken some courses or I still don’t qualify for the more advanced classes.My only options were to sign up for 3 English/writing intensives.I quite enjoy writing so I wasn’t too worried about taking 3 English classes at the same time.

Which Class is Which?
We are now 4 weeks into the trimester and classes are going well.Man is it hard to get that initial motivation started when you don’t have a physical classroom to go to once or twice a week!The only problem is that with two of my classes we are working on practically the same syllabus.

With these classes, we started out both by reading fairy tales.One was more about the writing style and the other was about the importance of the food in the stories.The next week was more of the same.Last week we moved onto cartoons and we ended up talking about the same movie in each class.It gets too confusing at times when we are doing homework and having to recall previous discussions.At times I find myself wondering which class is which?!

Can I just send in the same homework?
This week started with me watching the movie Babette’s Feast and reading the same short story written by Isak Dinesen.Later that day I found out that we were required to read the same story for the other class!If it weren’t for the fact that the required discussions, homework, and reports were pertaining to completely different questions, Imight think aboutsending in the same homework.

I have read the syllabus and thankfully next week the classes are going off in different directions, but at the moment it is very confusing.At least these classes keep me on my toes!
