Please enter your PREFERRED e-mail address. (It need not be @stanford.edu.):
Send a copy of this message to the email address listed above.
Please convey your answers to me by hitting the SEND MESSAGE box below by 2 p.m., Sunday, 9/19/09. 
If you hit SEND before you are finished, please do not be concerned.  Just continue to fill out the form
and hit SEND
again when you are done.  If the earlier answers have disappeared from your computer,
I'll still have them. 
If they have not disappeared, you can edit them and they will be in the next SEND.  I won't look
at prior SENDs unless the last one is incomplete.

First Name (not necessarily your legal name, but rather the name you wish to be called)

Last Name

Some of this information already appears on your Consent Form.  I am sorry you have to enter it again,
but please bear with me:  it will be helpful for me to have everyone's answers in a standard electronic format.

Pronunciation of your first and last names (if not obvious)
 (Suggestions: use "rhymes with" for a syllable or group of syllables with unusual combinations of letters, vowels that can be pronounced a variety of ways, and similar problems.  Use CAPS to indicate which syllable is emphasized for other than common names.  It would not be necessary to write JOHNson but for Chmielewski, it would be helpful to write Chim-uh-LESS-kee.  He didn't, in 1995, and I still remember that I had to ask)

What do you hope to learn in this course?


At our first meeting, I will distribute a spreadsheet with an abbreviated version of  the above personal information.
Please identify any (or all) answers you would like me to omit.

At our first meeting, I will also collect the printout of How the Course Will Work that you have read, marked up,
and signed..   State whether, for your own use until I hand back the printouts, you will (pick one) :
    make your own copy before class , or
    ask me to make a copy after class.

For my eyes only:
What book(s) are you currently reading, other than assigned books or reference works related to the pursuit of
your degree?  If none, when did you last finish a book other than
something assigned or work-related and what was the book?
