All of our efforts this past week were focused on finishing Project #3 and any remaining work.

  • To prepare for and write the Final Reflection and compile the Final Portfolio

To-Do This Week


  • Get energized and focused–this is the last week of the semester!
  • Meet with me in office hours or our optional writing lab or an appointment.
  • Complete the Student Evaluation of Teaching if you choose to
  • Complete the final survey about this course specifically (I’ll post an announcement about it when I’ve finished writing it)
  • We can do this! We’re doing this! We’re almost done with this!
  • When you’re all done, consider sharing your work with people who matter to you. Let them know the role they played in your journey through this impossible semester.


  • Read the instructions for the Final Reflection and Final Portfolio
  • Re-read your work from the semester to help guide you through the reflection and portfolio


  • Freewrite, brainstorm, and plan: look at the list of questions from the Final Reflection assignment instructions, and write answers to the questions you find relevant.
  • Write your Final Reflection. Divide the work into manageable parts. You could write one paragraph or section at a time, writing perhaps for 30 minutes at a time. Be sure to review your work. You could even ask a classmate or person in your life to review what you’ve written, or we can review it in office hours/writing lab/an appointment.
  • Are you revising any work for the Final Portfolio? What is the best use of your time at this point in the semester?
  • Compile your Final Portfolio, including the short paragraphs or lists to describe your real or imagined revision.
  • Publish your work using the appropriate category
