Weekly Assignments List-- Week 1 is up!

Warm Greetings, Listeners!

I am thrilled to announce that the Week 1 Assignments List is up and ready for you! You can access the document at this link:

A few instructions and reminders about this table:

  1. You will find your names listed on the left hand side, in order of your PulseWire member number.
    *If you don't see your name, please send me a message right away*
  2. Everyone has 5 or 6 assignments to review for this week. Be sure to scroll to the right to see them all!
  3. The ID numbers and User-names listed on this table are the ones you will use on the Evaluation Form.
  4. Be sure to take a moment to review the Week 1 Assignment at this link:
  5. This first set of reviews is due next Tuesday, September 28th.

If you have any questions about the table, or the Evaluation Form (which I will email a reminder link to next), or any part of the Listening process, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!

Thank you all so much for your commitment and passion for this program! It's a joy to have you with us.

Best wishes,

Got my assignments too!

Just let you know, I've got assignment :)


Hey all,
Word Count Tool was down today at around 7:45 p.m., PST. If you run into this problem, you can paste the assignment into a MS Word document - at the bottom of the page, there should be a word count for you. If you don't see it, you can also click on Tools, then Word Count.

Cheers, and happy listening!

Great idea!

That's a great solution Violeta! We've always got to be ready with creative solutions...

Word Count Tool seems to be working again.... for now!

I hope everyone's enjoying the Listening so far! It's really incredible to see all of the connections happening on PulseWire.

Still not on the list...can you do it today or tomorrow morning so I still have an option for this week, or should I wait until next week.
