2005-06 Reconciliation: A Process of Human Balance
Fall 2005 Announcements

Dear Professor Nakasone,

I am writing to ask for your help in spreading the word about the Greenpeace
Organizing Term (GOT), a leadership development program for undergraduate

Through the GOT, students receive over 50 skills trainings on topics ranging
from how to plan campaigns to working with the media, meet with the nation's
top environmental leaders, and acquire hands-on experience working on a
priority Greenpeace campaign. Since the program began one year ago, we have
trained twenty student activists. These students have played active roles in
key environmental campaigns, bringing about campus clean energy victories
and working to protect the last remaining ancient forests in North America.
You can find more information at www.greenpeaceusa.org/got

The best way you can help is by forwarding the email below to your classes
or interested students.

We also would like to invite you to become a member of our referral network.
As a member of the referral network, you will receive a mailing from
Greenpeace twice a year asking you to post fliers, make announcements in
your classes or recommend freshmen and sophomore students you think would be
great for the program.

Please let me know if you can email the announcement below or if you would
like to join the referral network. We are excited to have you involved!

My name is Eva Wong, and I am the
editor of the Cooper Point Journal. This year, members of our student group are putting together a plan to seek out new contributors among the student body. One of our ideas is to speak to students during classes about becoming involved with the CPJ.

We are interested in all kinds of content- news articles, letters and opinions pieces, photography and other visual art, etc. Contributing to the CPJ is a great way for students to become involved with their community and share their work, interests and ideas on a larger scale.

If any members of the faculty would be interested in having a member of the CPJ give a short (no more than 5 minutes) talk to their students, please let us know.

We can be reached by email at cpj@evergreen.edu, or by phone (360)

Thank you,

Eva Wong

RE:     Fifth Week Warning  
: Fifth-week warning letters are due to the students by Friday, October 29.  

Please be sure to contact all students who are in danger of earning reduced credit or no credit for fall quarter. Let them know what they need to do to earn full credit, with a schedule for completing the work, if possible. Many faculty find this a useful opportunity to chat briefly with all their students to make sure they and the students agree about how the student's work is progressing. It is important for students to understand that the absence of a fifth-week warning is not a guarantee that they will receive credit. The warning is a notification to students who are clearly in danger of losing credit.

From: Kelly, Chalen <kelcha11@evergreen.edu>
To: Nakasone, Raul <NakasonR@evergreen.edu>

Hola Raul,
I very much want to visit your class, but the days you are in class are the days I am working. I am considering taking a Tuesday afternoon off to come to visit but (due to the high volume of new students in fall) I must wait until week 4 or later to do it.
If student's want to email me questions about the visit I would be grateful, then I could focus my presentation towards their interests rather than just showing up with stuff they don't care about.
You might mention to your students that I would be happy to work with them on any writing they are doing. I am in the Writing Center in CAB 108 Tuesday through Friday until three P.M., though on Thursdays I am not available for tuturing as I am assisting in Pat Krafkic's class all day.
