Assignment 1: Introduce yourself

Deadline: Wed, Jan. 24., 2018 (by 11:59 pm) – deadline has been extended due to a delay in getting you website login access. You should have access by the end of the day Friday, Jan. 19.

10 points

The goals of this assignment are to:

  • Learn how to post on the course website
  • Introduce yourself to me and your classmates
  • Share some of your creative writing

It’s VERY IMPORTANT that you categorize your post as “Assignments” and “A1: Intro posts“. That will enable me and your classmates to easily find all of these posts.

What to include in your post:

  • your name
  • your haiku about microbes from the first day of class (or a new/revised version)
  • say something about yourself (could be something about you such as your year in school, major, interests, what you’re looking forward to learning, or anything else you’d like to share)
  • a picture – this can be anything – a photo of you, something related to microbiology, something that complements your poem (below), or anything else you’d like to post

*Note that this website is public, so please don’t share anything that you wouldn’t want the world to see about you.
