JULY 1,  2004

Soon I will be excluding students with Low Points.  The good news is that I will give you an ADD CARD on the first day of the next summer session (July 19) #7965 and carry forward whatever points you have earned to date.  PLEASE READ THIS A-GRAM CAREFULLY.

I am inundating you with information only because I care, ...  you are part of the 'information loop', thus you have more chance for success.  Right?... 

 I am working away in the pre-dawn hours .. revising this a-gram. Two topics -- (1) I preach Continuous Quality Improvement and Innovation ... so I have to practice it, so I revised this a-gram. 25cqii -- Give another example of CQII. from any world, automotive, electronics ... 25deming -- if you can relate it to Dr, W. Edwards Deming.  (2)  I give you 15ec points because I erred -- the previous version was poorly organized.  I accept the responsibility, and I fixed it.

======================

IN ORDER NOT TO BE DROPPED FOR LOW SCORES, UNDER
1000,  PLEASE CHECK  YOUR SCORE.

http://auciello.tripod.com/deform7966.html.txt

STATING THIS IN A LOGICAL WAY:

there are a number of ways to take this course, arranged in descending order of quality -- with a GAIN vs RISK TRADE-OFF.

1. BEST WAY -- 

-- COMING TO ORIENTATION, 1ST 2 DAYS OF CLASS;

-- GETTING BOOK;  

-- 701 START DISK, CD, AND LEARNING TO RUN THEM. 

-- LEARNING TO USE ATT/PART FORM. 

-- HAVING ACCESS TO AN 'ONLINE COMPUTER' SYSTEM FOR AN 'ONLINE CLASS'. 

-- DOING WORK ON START DISK OR OTHER WORK. 

-- SUBMITTING SCORES, ACCUMULATING THEM, READING A-GRAMS. 

-- EMAILING ME CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS, WITH A BACKUP ADDRESS (PREFERRED), 

-- PLUS MAILING ADDRESS PLUS PHONE NUMBER. 

-- CHECKING FOR MESSAGES ON 213.763.7268. LEAVING PH # IF NEEDED.  AND 

-- CALLING IN OR CHECKING A-GRAMS IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING EMAIL FROM ME AT LEAST 2 / WEEK (possibly because your inbox is full).  

-- BUILDING POINTS. PUTTING IN NOTEBOOK. PRESENTING IT AS PROOF, FOR FINAL GRADE.

FOLLOWING THIS WILL HELP GUARANTEE YOU "A" OR "B" -- LOW RISK.  

=====================================

2. LOW AND MEDIUM QUALITY -- EXTREME /  HIGH RISK. METHOD. 

-- MISSING ORIENTATION.  LATE IN GETTING START DISK.  BAD COMPUTER / INTERNET AT HOME.  NO BACKUP SYSTEM. NO EMAIL OR FULL INBOX, NO PHONE, NO MAILING ADDRESS, NOT ACCUMULATING (DETAILING) POINTS.  GIVING MORE  EXCUSES THAN WORK.  NOT KEEPING YOUR WORD.  NOT KEEPING IN CONTACT.  TELLING LOTS OF STORIES (worse than me).  NOT SUBMITTING WORK, NOT CHECKING IN 4 TIMES / WEEK.

( YOU WILL PROBABLY LOSE USING THIS MODE, BECAUSE GRADES ARE BASED ON POINTS, AND POINTS HAVE TO BE EARNED CONTINUOUSLY AND REPORTED CONTINUOUSLY.  THE ATT/PART PROGRAM TRACKS YOUR SUBMISSIONS BY DAY, TIME, DOWN TO THE MINUTE.  IF YOU ARE NOT ON THE http://deform7966.html.txt  LISTING, YOU HAVE SLIM TO NO CHANCES OF PASSING. )

THIS COURSE AND ALL MY WORK IS CUSTOMER-BASED.  RECENTLY, I "GOT" THAT MY CUSTOMER AND YOUR CUSTOMER IS YOUR FUTURE EMPLOYER WHO WILL DEMAND A CERTAIN SKILL LEVEL.  THEREFORE IT IS MY TASK TO LEAD YOU, TEACH YOU, GUIDE YOU TO THAT SKILL LEVEL.  THIS IS MY JOB.  COME SEE ME, AND FLAT OUT ASK ME FOR HELP!

========================================

.... A bit of 'cybersmack' from Prof. A:  Really, I want to give you assignments that will strengthen you.  Feel free to give me some feedback on how they are working for you!   "Communication between honest people generally creates value and solves problems."

Finally, I am starting to really implement the technology I learned at the Microsoft Innovative Teacher Seminar in 2002.  I develop lessons, transfer them to Frontpage, massage them, refine and test them.  Save them, then FTP them to my website.  I expect a huge increase is learning as more timely, relevant lessons are posted on the Web, where your future is!
 
LAST WORD.  YOU MUST BE SIGNING IN, DOING WORK, REPORTING POINTS, ELSE TO PREVENT YOUR GETTING A LOW MARK, .... 

LET'S GO DO IT!   BE WELL.  PROF. A.  OUT.
