Week 3: “Raisin” continued and Project 1

Hi Everyone:

I have extended the due dates for your Week 2 post (now due 6/16) and Project 1 (now due 6/20). After we get through this week I will assess and adjust the reading schedule for the remaining weeks of the course. As your professor, I understand the need for some flexibility.  Try to complete Week 2 ASAP and then reach out to me about Project 1 and what you’re thinking about exploring. Feel free to email me for feedback at any stage of your writing– thesis crafting, outline, rough draft.  Definitely include the quote sandwich (see my Writing Process Powerpoint slides on the Project 1 assignment page).

Below I’m including a few other resources on “Raisin”– these might be helpful to jumpstart discussion. You can leave your Week 2 comment under my original Week 2 post (with a bevy of Raisin resources) or below here. Either is fine.
