    I took 1020 on-line a couple semesters ago. It was pretty easy just drama and poetry, nothing too intense. I also was working part-time and taking a Hybrid Algebra and Psych and I didn't have any trouble.

    J845,

    I am taking that this summer so I have no insight as of yet. @Lee, can you inbox me your professor for 1020? Thanks

    They forced me to take 1020 even though I had 5000 level English course work from a previous degree. You read poetry for the first 5 weeks or so then the second 5 weeks you read Drama. You'll write a few papers, but the major paper for the semester is the research paper that you write. Other than that the class isn't hard. It's an easy A if you write reasonably well, and the stuff you write makes sense.

    MelMel,
    I can't send a private message because I only have 13 posts. fyi I signed out "Sound and Sense" from a Cuyahoga County library, you don't need "Rules for Writers", you can get all MLA info on-line, and she uses the "Compact Bedford Intro to Drama" but you really just need the plays listed on her syllabus which you can get those from the library as well (if your trying to save money). I am on a tight budget so I like to find the cheapest book options.

    Those of you starting the days program at Metro this fall will be very happy with your 1300/1450 lecture instructor. She was my clinical instructor this semester, but taught 1300/1450 at the Westshore campus. She might seem mean at first, but she's not mean at all. If you show up and listen to exactly what she says you'll do really really well. Plus I heard through the grapevine that 1300 will have two 50 minute lectures a week as opposed to the one 50 minute lecture we had this semester.

    I can't believe orientation is Wed. I am excited but nervous at the same time. I've wanted to do this for so long and now it is only a couple months away!

    It's exciting to be starting, but orientation is actually pretty freaking boring. Basically they tell you to register for 1300 Lecture and Lab and 1450 Lecture, lab, and clinical. You need to buy the blue tote and the sharps kit ticket from the bookstore. You need to complete a mandatory hour of practice in the lab each week. Other than that it's pretty much a snooze fest.

    I am excited to get the information to register but I know a lot of the information will be boring. Were you there for the whole three hours? Anything that I should bring besides a notebook and the paperwork that needs to be filled out?

    Yeah, we were there for the entire 3 hours. You don't really need anything other than a pen and the slip of paper with your score on it from the NEONI test on the Tri-C Blackboard site if they are still making new students bring that to orientation and a small notebook to write things down if you feel you must. Nothing really important is discussed during orientation most of the information save for scheduling grids is already under files on the group site. There you can find information on the required uniform. Ect. Just FYI. You can wear what ever the hell you want to lecture for the most part. In the lab you need closed toe shoes and the white lab coat. Although, when you are in your scheduled lab class most of the instructors don't care if you wear the coat or not. Mainly you wear the coat when you go to practice. However, if you are coming right from clinical wearing your white scrubs you don't need the coat. For clinical you just wear your white scrubs with the patch. You do not need the lab coat. One good piece of advice DO NOT EVER EVER EVER FORGET YOUR PINK LAB SKILLS CARD that you'll receive on your first day of lab. You will NOT be allowed to test out on that weeks skills and will have to make that test out up the next week along with the new skills. Just stick that pink card in a folder that you ALWAYS leave in your backpack. If it is reasonably close for you I recommend the Parma Health Education Center for your lab practice. For one parking is free, and two oftentimes you can get one on one help from the preceptors and often two on one help if you are the only student in the lab. Oftentimes I was the only person in that lab, granted I did more ********ting around with the preceptors than actual practice at the time, but . . .

    Thank you for all the information! I will not forget the pink cards! Is there any books you purchased that you didn't use? Is there any books that were recommended that you wish you would have purchased?
