9. Old time music jam session on Tuesday

This semester all are invited to join in a monthly jam session full of old time music: fiddle tunes, banjo picking, and maybe even some dancing. All instruments and voices are welcome.

The sessions are open (this is not part of a class). Our next meeting is at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 13 in room 2002 of the Moore Musical Arts building.

This group is for those who play--or those who want to play--old time music. Old time music is made to be casual, accessible, and a good time. The tunes are short and (usually) straightforward, with plenty of opportunity for "fiddling around" with the melodies. There's no expectation of previous experience.

If you have questions or would like to know what tunes we will play through, contact Dr. Christopher Witulski (cwituls@bgsu.edu).

12. Recyclemania has returned!

Recyclemania started this past Monday and BGSU is ready to compete! Do you wish to participate but are unsure about what can or cannot be recycled? Look around campus for our new signs that tell you everything you need to know about what can be recycled and what belongs in the landfill. Even a small amount of contamination, or items that cannot be recycled, can ruin an entire load of recycling. Items like paper towels, food waste, plastic utensils and styrofoam are examples of contamination and cannot be recycled. Plastic bags can be recycled, but they must be placed in the specified bins which can be found in the Student Union or Falcon Heights. Be sure to stay updated on the resident hall recycling competition through Campus Updates and social media posts from the Office of Campus Sustainability.

11. Binge-watching vs. Exercise

It's not easy to get up and go to the rec when the wind feels like it's cutting through your coat or to grab that salad for dinner when French fries are staring you in the face. It is easy to binge-watch shows while eating bad. Making healthy choices seems so much harder during the winter months. But it extends beyond physical health, food and exercise. Good choices around mental, sexual and relationship health are important too.

This issue of Roost Readings is loaded with things to consider as you work to get/stay healthy. Learn more about boosting your academic performance here.

This is part of the FSRC Roost Readings newsletter where you will find tips and resources while you are living at, and attending, BGSU. Each month there will be a new Roost Reading. You can always find details from the previous editions here.

12. Women in Comics online summer class

Women in Comics
ACS 3000/WS/3000 103W

Online course
2nd summer session: June 25-August 3

This course will explore the history of women writers and artists in the comic book industry. Each week we will read comics written or drawn by women. Topics will include war comics, romance comics, underground comix, graphic memoirs, and superheroes.

We will discuss what these stories created by women can tell us about the intersections of gender, race, and class identities. We will also consider how the comic book format lends itself to women's storytelling.

13. Online Summer Course: Girlhood in American Culture

If you're looking for a fun online summer class, I am teaching "Girlhood in American Culture" in the first summer session, May 14 - June 22.

The course is cross-listed with American Culture Studies and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Throughout this course we will consider the struggles that girls face as they are confronted by structures of gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, and citizenship. More importantly, we will consider the ways in which girls resist these structures as they forge and lay claim to their own identity, culture, and power.

If you have any questions feel free to email me at vtpyles@bgsu.edu. Click here for more information:

14. Adult participants needed for research study

A study is being conducted by a graduate student in clinical psychology that looks at the experiences of adults who have lost a sibling through death. Participants will be asked to participate in a brief phone prescreening interview to determine eligibility, followed by an individual interview lasting approximately 1 hour. Topics covered during the interview will include the participant’s experiences dealing with the loss, receipt of support after the loss, and changes that occurred as a result of the death. Participants will be given a $10 Amazon gift card as a thank you for their involvement in the study.

Participants must over 18 years of age. Additionally, they must have experienced the death of a sibling between 1 and 5 years ago.

General Studies Writing Brown Bag Workshop series:

Join us at noon Monday (Feb. 12) in 206 East Hall for "Breaking the Silence: Encouraging Discussion Participation in Face-to-Face and Online Classes," facilitated by Lauren Salisbury.

About the workshop: How do you encourage students to speak up when participation is the last thing they want to do? In this workshop, learn about instructor strategies for facilitating discussions in the face‑to‑face classroom and online learning environment. First, we will reflect on the challenges we face guiding class discussions. After brainstorming potential causes of these challenges, we will learn about and workshop alternative discussion strategies to encourage student conversation and participation. Instructors will take away low- and high‑preparation, and face‑to‑face, hybrid, and online discussion approaches to adapt for different courses and environments.

4. BGSU 1910 Honors sections needed

The Honors College needs up to 5 more sections of BGSU 1910H: First Year Seminar for F18. This is a one-hour, seminar class that first year Honors students complete. BGSU 1910H seminars allow students to work closely with a professor and classmates on a topic of the faculty member’s choice. The first class meeting would take place Thursday, 8/23 as part of our Honors orientation (but could also help shorten the number of weeks you teach the class overall).

We seek to provide sections covering broad topics that mimic the diversity of majors represented by our students. For more information or to submit applications to teach BGSU 1910H, visit the Provost's Office website.

Call or email Jodi Devine, Associate Dean, Honors College with any questions at 419-372-8501 or jdevine@bgsu.edu.
