Mini assignment Number 3!

Posted May 19, 2009 from United States

Hello!

I have a few updates and a mini-assignment.

~We are working fast and furiously to get your welcome packets ready and out the door by the end of this week. I'll let you know as soon as they are in the mail.

~We are hoping to announce the Correspondent/Mentor pairs this week as well, but please be patient in case we are not ready until early next week. (However, if you cannot be patient, we get it. We are impatient, too! ) We are waiting on a few final commitments from mentors.

~Before we finalize the curriculum, we want to ensure we have a good understanding of your experience and background in journalism. Please complete this short, anonymous survey by the end of day Monday, May 25th.

Thanks, Jennifer

Hi there, dear Jennifer,

I didn't get this post in my email. I found it through browsing in my groups. Please make sure the rest of the gals have received it, or send it again just in case.

Thanks so much.

Jackie

Hi jackie, Today, I get the survey, and I already replied it. I think you can get the information if you check your email. Try it now. Have a wonderful day.

Hi, Jackie

I heard from a few of the Applicants during the application that they didn't receive notifications, too. I'll have Ankur look into it, but typically the issue is on the receiving end. You might want to check your junk/spam mail to ensure it didn't go to that folder. Also, I think I'll send a reminder to the group to check our classroom frequently just in case this happens to other Correspondents.

Ahhhh technology! We love it. We want it to be perfect! :-)

Thanks for the update!

Jennifer

Hi Jenn!

I am sorry to disturb you, because I am almost sure that the doubts that I have are due of my own distraction ;-) however I prefer to be sure that I will doing things right.

1) The last week i sent my love letter to the e-mail that you gave us... but I wasnt sure if i had to post it only in the group, so i did both things, just in case

2) Few minutes ago i completed the "survey", in that point I was a little lost, I thought it was optional ... sorry for the delay

3) I am wondering if since now I have to do my posts in my own journal, or if i have to post in the group of Correspondents... I mean, I am not sure about the difference between posting in my journal or in this group, because, finally, every time that we post something, all of us receive an e-mail, right?!

Let me insist, that I accept that i have this doubts due to my own distraction, I have been working so much in Peace Correspondent website and I am only visiting Pulse Wire several times during the week, but I prefer to ask you to be sure that I am following the process correctly.

Thanks a lot for your patience. Love. Xthina " )

Hi Jenny, I am also wondering if should posting into my journal or or if i have to post in the closed group of Correspondents

I am also need clear clarifications about posting in my journal or in this group

Could you also clarify the criteria the international panel of judges will use to award the three high-voltage Correspondents. i do not understand what high-voltage Correpondent means.

Many thanks for your response and for your dedication and commitment on this journey with us.

With love, Gifty

Hi Jennifer

Thank you. I have completed the survey. I also wondered if I had missed any posting on the instructions on the love letter. I did one thing which I was sure of from the e-mail address I received - I sent it to the e-mail provided. I started wondering as there were many love letters posted in the classroom! But at least I did see that I was not included in the list of people whose letters were still outstanding.

Take care Martha
